The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute at Brandeis University invites applications for a residency, HBI Seminar Series–Female Interpreters of Religious Law: Women’s leadership as Clergy, Educators, Advisors and Judges (Spring 2017). The application deadline is May 19, 2016.
Scholars working in any religious tradition whose work explores developments in women’s religious leadership are invited to apply for this semester long residency. This program will be directed by Lisa Fishbayn Joffe, director of the HBI Project on Gender, Culture, Religion and Law.
Participants will meet twice monthly for luncheon seminars in which they discuss their ongoing work. Participants will: (1) present one public lecture, which may consist of a presentation to an appropriate Brandeis class; (2) present one “teach in” session for HBI staff; (3) present a lecture or participate in a round-table at a 1-day conference that will be organized during the last week of the SIR Program.
The accepted program recipient(s) will receive a monthly stipend to support her/his research. In addition, recipients will receive (shared) office space at the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University and access to all available Brandeis University resources.
