This broader dimension may include (but is not limited to): environmental studies/sciences; Jews of the non-Western World; ethnic and cultural diversity within Judaism and Israel; music and dramatic arts; legal studies; religion or folklore, including halakha or ritual; agriculture/food studies; gender and intersectional analysis; media and communications; Hebrew, Yiddish, Aramaic, or Judeo-Arabic literature and culture. We especially encourage applications in areas that complement, without duplicating, existing faculty expertise.
