Seminar on Archival and Historical Research May 19-22, 2014 New York City The Center for Jewish History Seminar on Archival and Historical Research is a four-day program for rising college seniors, MA students and first- and second-year doctoral students to learn the skills of conducting archival research at one of the premier research libraries in the United States. The seminar's focus is on learning a variety of tools for accessing information and incorporating archival and library research into specific projects. In addition, participants will be introduced to the vast holdings of the Center's partner organizations, and the ways those collections are created, stored, and preserved. The 2014 research seminar will welcome students from various disciplines including history, Jewish studies, literature, religion, politics, sociology, anthropology, as well as area and regional studies. Teaching sessions will be led by scholars familiar with the collections based at the Center; archivists and librarians of the Center's five partner organizations; staff members of the Center's Lillian Goldman Reading Room; and the Center's Graduate, Postdoctoral, and Senior Scholar Fellows. Participants will have the opportunity to conduct their own research in the Center's Reading Room, utilizing the full complement of available research tools. Applications are welcome from rising college seniors, recent university and college graduates, MA students, and PhD candidates in their first two years of matriculation. Applications are due by March 17, 2014. For full application guidelines, please visit fellowships.cjh.org.
