Welcome to a new year at Queen’s! Message from Director
Welcome back to a new year at Queen’ University! We are as excited and trepidatious as anyone else this year: excited to be back to in person teaching, and worried about the obvious things. That said, there is good reason for us to be cautiously optimistic about the year: we have an exciting slate of classes, several taught by new faces, and all of them bound to provoke and teach. We are also planning a number of events, some in person, and others online, which we will be posting here soon.
Whether you are just interested in taking a single course, diving into a Jewish Studies minor, or even just attending a public lecture, we are here to help you learn new things and expose yourself to new ways of thinking. Jewish Studies has several awards and opportunities available for our minors, and work with professors and graduate students to sponsor and support their work in Jewish Studies and related fields. If you have any questions, or just want to see what we’re doing, just send me an email.
Have a good semester, be safe, and enjoy another year of learning and study.
Dustin N. Atlas
Director of Jewish Studies
Assistant Professor and Undergraduate Chair in the Department of Religion
Continued support will enable us to preserve Jewish Studies role in the educational landscape of Queen’s, to diversify our curriculum, and to open up new educational and professional opportunities for students at all levels.
