Each year, the Centre hosts Oxford Seminars in Advanced Jewish Studies (OSAJS). Historically, up to ten scholars from around the world convened in Oxford for these Seminars during a dedicated period of several months to research a specific topic within Hebrew and Jewish Studies that had the potential to advance the field in an innovative manner. Currently, under a new format, the Centre hosts multiple Visiting Fellows during the academic year through the OSAJS working on research related to Jewish languages (the Oxford School of Rare Jewish Languages Fellowships) and manuscripts (the Makor Manuscripts Visiting Fellowships). For an archive of previous OSAJSs, please click here; for details of our current OSAJS public lecture schedule, please consult this page.
