Brown University: Revisiting the Questions of Jewish Origins

The Program in Judaic Studies at Brown University will host a conference entitled “Revisiting the Question of Jewish Origins: Myth/Construct/Reality” on March 20-21, 2017 at The Faculty Club, One Magee Street, Providence, Rhode Island.

The Jews have one of the longest continuously recorded histories of any people in the world, but what do we actually know about their origins? This multi-disciplinary symposium aims to bring together new research on the question of Jewish origin from a range of fields, including historical studies, archaeology, and genetics.

All conference sessions are open to the public. Any questions should be addressed to Katharina Galor at
