Deadline for Spring 2016: October 15, 2015
Jewish Studies in Poland combines classroom lectures with workshops, guest speakers, and visits to historical sites. Many class sessions will be held in the newly-opened modern Museum of the History of Polish Jews, a narrative museum with an interactive multimedia core exhibition covering 1000 years of Jewish history on Polish soil. The museum director, Professor Dariusz Stola, is a former vice-rector for Collegium Civitas and still teaches there. Collegium Civitas is a top-rated non-public university in downtown Warsaw and coordinates this program in conjunction with SRAS.
This program is open to anyone interested in studying the history of the European Jews and the current status of the Israeli state in the world. It should be of special interest to anyone seeking to understand the history of WWII and Communism, how state policy can help or hinder social tolerance, or in learning more about the Yiddish or Polish languages. Join SRAS and Collegium Civitas next semester for a fascinating look at Jewish culture, history, and revival!
Spring, 2016: Feb 29 – June 17, 2016 (Apply by Oct 15, 2015)
