Jewish Studies is a multi-disciplinary field that brings together scholars, topics, and methods from across many academic disciplines. The twelfth EAJS congress “Branching Out. Diversity of Jewish Studies", taking place in Frankfurt/Main (Germany) on July 16-20 2023, will showcase the diversity that is an integral part of Jewish Studies: research topics that range from the Bible and ancient history to contemporary Jewish Thought and Culture, a multitude of different sources from all over the world, methods and approaches from Archaeology to Digital Humanities, and the vast array of interdisciplinary networks and research approaches.

EAJS Emerge provides a forum for PhD student members and emerging scholars to discuss their research with each other and to engage with more senior academics. We envision a combination of PhD Flash presentations (5 minutes), reactions from selected senior scholars from the respective fields, workshops on publishing and funding, as well as opportunities for networking etc., and possibly shared experiences by Early career researchers. A presentation is not required for participation.

Student members of the EAJS (and doctoral students who are not members of the EAJS) are invited to submit their proposals in order to present their dissertation topics in 5 minutes. A recommendation letter by the PhD-supervisors is not required. Proposals will be accepted until December 31st 2022, 23:59h (GMT +1). Proposals should be submitted through the Congress website, https://eajs-2023.eu.


Congress fees:

EAJS Student Members:             € 50

Non EAJS PhD Students:            € 80



A grant program for EAJS Student Members, early career researchers, and scholars from countries with below average income will offer free accommodation for July 16-21 2023 to those awarded the grant. The call for applications for this grant program will be published separately on eajs-2023.eu and in the EAJS Newsletter; grant applications by student members who plan to actively participate (with a presentation on their PhD project) will be considered first.
