The course of study offers training in Hebrew and Yiddish language, literature, and culture in its many transnational iterations and focuses on the modern period while attending to the long history of the literary traditions in these languages. The Hebrew and Yiddish subdivision of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Johns Hopkins is now accepting applications for a fully-funded PhD program in Jewish Languages and Literatures. The PhD program is complemented by the reach of our department’s faculty across languages (German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian, in addition to Hebrew and Yiddish), periods (medieval to the present), and media (especially literature and film). Students in our program can also expect to enrich their studies by drawing on the faculty of the Stulman Program in Jewish Studies which is particularly strong in modern Jewish history and philosophy. Accepted students will receive five years of funding guaranteed (33K annually). The program will award a PhD degree in Jewish Languages and Literatures.
