The AJS Distinguished Lectureship Program connects you with distinguished lecturers in the field of Jewish studies. Enrich your next program with one of over 300 lectures, which cover the breadth of Jewish history, religion, politics, and culture.
Each scholar gives one lecture per year for the Lectureship Program and donates the lecture fee to the AJS. The lecture fee for each speaker is $1,000. Sponsors of a lecture provided by the AJS Distinguished Lectureship Program pay the lecture fee directly to AJS and cover the lecturer's travel and lodging expenses. The fee covers a 90-120 minute presentation, which includes a question and answer session. Any further requests made of the speaker (e.g. for class visits, other talks, etc.) should be covered by an additional honorarium paid directly by the host institution to the speaker and will be theirs to keep. The AJS is currently booking lectures for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 academic years.
You can browse the lectures offered by the AJS Distinguished Lectureship Program by topic, title, lecturer, or the state or province where lecturers are located. Once you have selected a lecture, please contact Natasha Perlis, Lectureship Program Manager to discuss arrangements. Please do not contact speakers directly; the AJS office will handle all arrangements with the speakers.
