Every semester, scholars from the Dubnow Institute conduct seminars, tutorials, and a research colloquium on Jewish history and culture at Leipzig University. The courses form a part of the regular semester program of the Historical Seminar and are conducted either in English or German. They are open to students of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Philosophy, the Faculty of Philology, and the Faculty of Law, as well as to students of the interdisciplinary European Studies Masters at the Institute for Cultural Studies. The Dubnow Institute moreover participates in teaching at the University of Halle-Wittenberg and in the Master’s in »History and Politics of the 20th Century« at Jena University.
