One of the activities held within the School of History framework is a series of three lectures on the mutual link between history and historiography that is given annually by a historian who is a leading and innovative scholar in his field. The lectures should be delivered in three sessions, each consisting of an hour and half. A lecture session takes forty-five to fifty minutes and the remaining forty to forty-five minutes are devoted to discussion. The lectures are intended to deal with history and historiography questions in your field of research, but it would be desirable to intersperse some aspects of a wider scope that transcend time and place which could also be relevant for scholars and research students who are not engaged in the field of your expertise.
The School of History aim to publish these lectures as part of the lecture series both in Hebrew and in English.
The School of History’s Scholars Seminar seeks to forge a scholarly dialogue and discourse among the School’s faculty members, past and present. It serves as a forum for new and veteran faculty members to meet, along with retired faculty who, though they may have stopped teaching, have never stopped engaging in research.
The seminar is an annual series of six encounters, three each semester.
The lecturer will send participants an article or two for advance reading and after the lecture we will conduct a serious and lively discussion. The workshops will take place on Wednesdays between noon and 2 p.m., and will include lunch.
After the lecture series, before the summer vacation, we will go together on an educational tour guided by one of the School’s faculty members.
