Milwaukee Jewish Studies Colloquium

Milwaukee Jewish Studies Colloquium, a forum for scholars in the Milwaukee area to present their research in progress to Milwaukee-area faculty, academic staff, and graduate students. We plan to meet several times each academic year, with some sessions at Marquette and some at UWM. Over time, the colloquium will showcase research projects covering a broad swath of the field: from ancient to modern times, and from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

Sessions will take place in the upcoming 2015-2016 academic year at the Sam & Helen Stahl Center for Jewish Studies (Greene Museum, between Greene Hall and Sabin Hall, 3367 N. Downer Avenue) and also at Marquette University. Light kosher refreshments will be served.
