Annual Conference of the Australia Association for Jewish Studies

On 11-12 February 2019, at Monash University, Melbourne.

Jewish, Hebrew and Biblical Studies scholarship in Australian universities arguably constitutes a growing field. While the number of people whose research comes under the rubric of these fields remains relatively small, the scope and heft of this research is considerable. This conference of the Australian Association for Jewish Studies seeks to initiate a discussion regarding the state of Jewish, Hebrew and Biblical Studies in Australia. What current research is being undertaken? What disciplines are covered? What methodological perspectives and challenges drive research in Australia? Do we share common themes and approaches? AAJS Melbourne, 2019, will bring Jewish, Hebrew and Biblical Studies scholars from across the country together in conversation, to present our latest research, to explore common themes, and to maintain community and collegiality in this scholarship in Australian universities.
