About Us

The Centre brings together a group of leading scholars coming from a wide range of disciplines including Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Geography, History, Literary Theory, Political Science, and Theology.

We conduct research involving different aspects of the lives of Jewish communities around the world. Our current research interests include, but are not limited to anthropology and political sociology of Jewish communities, twentieth-century Jewish history and literature, Jewish political thought, and the study of the State of Israel.
