Graduate Workshop at the 34th AIS Annual Meeting
ISRAEL AT SEVENTY: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES
Berkeley Institute for Jewish Law and Israel Studies, University of California, Berkeley School of Law, Berkeley, CA
The Berkeley Institute for Jewish Law and Israel Studies at University of California, Berkeley, in collaboration with the Association for Israel Studies, will host a half-day workshop for graduate student members of the AIS.
The workshop will be held on Sunday, June 24th, 2018, from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm, at Berkeley Law, the Goldberg Room, 297 Boalt Hall.
The workshop will expose graduate students to multi-disciplinary discussions of Israeli society, explore the boundaries of the field of Israel studies, and discuss academia-related questions such as methodology, pedagogy, publishing, and the job market. This is a unique opportunity for graduate student members of the AIS to learn more about major themes and accessible sources in current research in Israel studies – and a wide range of related subjects.
It also allows participants to meet peers in a friendly, informal environment. To register for the workshop, send your CV and a short description of Research interests to Rebecca Golbert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The submission deadline is April 30, 2018.
Participation in the workshop is free for AIS members.
Some financial help may be available for students who are participating in the workshop and need an extra night at the hotel. For details, please contact AIS Treasurer Ilan Ben-Ami at email@example.com.
Refreshments and light lunch will be provided.
We ask AIS members to encourage their students to participate in this workshop.
