Exploring Jewish cultural history

Hebrew at the UvA equates to the study of (European) Jewish cultural history since the Middle Ages to the present. Important aspects that are examined include the history of the Jewish book, philosophy and science. Research is primarily based on Hebrew and related heritage, such as Jiddish heritage in Amsterdam. Local institutes and collections provide the research impetus, and researchers actively participate in international networks.
