Research and Awards
Core and affiliated faculty in Northeastern’s Jewish Studies Program regularly publish important books and articles in Jewish history and literature, biblical studies, Israel studies, and international relations.
The literature, history, and memory of the Holocaust and the history and culture of global Jewish communities are particular strengths of the program’s faculty. Core and affiliated faculty supervise graduate research in a range of fields, and the Jewish Studies Program supports graduate students working on projects related to any field of Jewish studies with a financial subvention for research or conference presentation.
The Jewish Studies Program supports undergraduate research through its required capstone project, the Gideon Klein Award, and the Ruderman Scholarship in Jewish Studies. Undergraduates also frequently have the opportunity to work directly with faculty on research projects, such as Rediscovering the Refugee Scholars of the Nazi Era, a digital humanities collaboration involving faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates.
