The Holocaust Educational Foundation and Northwestern University are

sixteenth annual Summer Institute on the Holocaust and Jewish
Civilization from June 19 to July 1, 2011 in Evanston, Illinois. This
renowned program is an intensive two-week course of study designed to
broaden and deepen the background of current and prospective Holocaust
educators. It is open to faculty at the college or university level
and to graduate students who are pursuing a Ph.D. Approximately 25
Fellows are selected annually, each of whom receives free room, board,
and tuition during the program. (Fellowships do not cover, however,
travel expenses to and from Evanston, as well as the cost of assigned
books.). We seek fellows from a wide variety of disciplines, and
encourage the participation of all intellectual areas related to
Holocaust Studies.

The Institute curriculum consists of courses, lectures, and seminars
taught by leading scholars on the following themes: the religious
practice and history of the European Jews, problems in Holocaust
interpretation, the Holocaust in literature and film, art and the
Holocaust, the Holocaust and modern thought, Sociology and the
Holocaust, and the pedagogy of the Holocaust. In addition, the
Institute offers a rich program of guest lectures on occasional themes
and of cultural and recreational outings and events in Chicago.

Applications, consisting of a letter explaining the prospective
Fellow’s interest and experience in Holocaust studies, a curriculum
vitae, and, in the case of graduate students, a letter of
recommendation from the principal dissertation advisor, should be
submitted by February 25 to: Prof. Paul Jaskot, Summer Institute
