Call for Applications: “Digital Humanities and Jewish Epigraphy” International Winter School

The successful integration of digital humanities into the field of history during the past two decades has generated important epigraphic projects. This digital humanities revolution, however, has not made a major impact on Jewish epigraphy, meaning epitaphs, synagogal inscriptions, and dedicatory texts in Hebrew, Aramaic, or other languages associated with Judaism. A generous grant from the European Association of Jewish Studies (EAJS), with additional contributions from Utrecht University and the Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur, Mainz, enables a first step towards changing this, through an international Winter School on DH and Jewish epigraphy.
