Young Scholars Workshop

The Salo W. and Jeannette M. Baron Young Scholars Awards for Scholarly Excellence in Research of the Jewish Experience is awarded biannually to two young academic scholars from all fields of study who have completed an exceptional Master’s thesis and are currently writing a PhD dissertation, or have recently completed a PhD thesis all of which are related to the Jewish experience.

In the framework of the award ceremony, a Young Scholars Workshop is organized. This workshop will bring the laureates of our Young Scholars Awards together with internationally distinguished scholars studying the Jewish experience. The workshop will facilitate a conversation about important topics within Jewish studies and will allow junior scholars to benefit from the experience of distinguished scholars in the field.

The senior laurate will open the workshop with an impulse lecture and will respond to the contributions of the laureates of the two young scholars awards.
