The Greater Washington Jewish History Colloquium (JHC), hosted by GW’s Judaic Studies Program, is a hub for faculty, postdoctoral students, independent researchers and graduate students working in the field of modern Jewish history (broadly defined) in the greater Washington, D.C., area.
Discussions during the colloquium focus on pre-circulated papers. The format includes a 15–25-minute presentation by the author(s) of the papers, followed by a Q&A session. The colloquium is open to the public, but audience members are kindly requested to RSVP.
When campus is open, the colloquium is held at GW's Gelman Library. The colloquium meets three times each semester on Fridays, starting at 10:30 a.m. and ending by noon, followed by a 30-minute lunch. Beginning Fall 2020, the JHC will be held online from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
