The Taub Center organizes monthly workshops for graduate students and faculty in the field of Israel Studies at NYU and other universities in the tri-state area. The regional workshops are an opportunity for students and faculty to present and discuss their respective areas of research. The workshops also serve as an important forum for networking and strengthening the field of Israel Studies. In addition to NYU students, participants have included scholars and students from Columbia University, CUNY, Princeton, Rutgers, and SUNY, among others. If you are a scholar and wish to join our workshops, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org for registration information.
