Fixed Term, 10 weeks January – March 2024

The Holocaust Research Institute (HRI) at Royal Holloway, University of London, is seeking a highly motivated Visiting Lecturer to contribute to a major donor-funded project, “Global Jewish Studies in/as Holocaust Studies” for the spring term (January to March) 2024. The successful candidate will contribute to teaching on the MA in Holocaust Studies and a limited amount of undergraduate seminars, and will also be expected to deliver a small number of “masterclasses” for postgraduate students, faculty and HRI associates and advance the interests of the HRI with respect to the wider scholarly community and the general public. The post is fixed-term for a period of ten weeks, in the spring term of 2024.

“Global Jewish Studies in/as Holocaust Studies” seeks to integrate Jewish Studies and Holocaust Studies. Through a combination of research projects, visiting lecturers, new MA modules, summer schools and the creation of an academic network, the HRI seeks to embed Jewish Studies into its work and to advance the discipline of Holocaust Studies nationally and internationally. The VL will work in any area of Sephardic Studies (including, but not restricted to history, literature, anthropology, sociology and linguistics). We welcome applications from candidates whose research has a global focus and with a methodological expertise in digital humanities.

The post is based in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London. 

Informal enquiries should be made to Professor Dan Stone [email protected] , Director of the Holocaust Research Institute.
