Weeklong Seminar on Qalonymos b. Qalonymos
The Shalom Spiegel Institute of Medieval Hebrew Poetry at the Jewish Theological Seminary, New York, will be dedicated to the work of Qalonymos b. Qalonymos (c. 14th century, Provence/Catalonia/Italian Peninsula) from June 16-21, 2024 at the Seminary. The week will include daily seminars with leading scholars on various aspects of Qalonymos’ work (Hebrew poetry and philosophical writings) as well as instruction in developing skills in the close reading of medieval Hebrew texts. The seminar will meet for morning and afternoon sessions Monday through Thursday, concluding with one session and lunch on Friday. The program is intended to supplement academic programs that offer medieval Jewish studies, general Hebrew literature and Jewish philosophy, but do not provide courses in which medieval Hebrew texts are read in the original. It is also expected to benefit students and faculty who have had access to such courses, but whose academic work would benefit from more intensive training in this area.Continue reading The Shalom Spiegel Institute Summer Seminar in Medieval Hebrew Poetry
