Jewish Studies at the University of Leeds has a long tradition, going back to a lectureship established by Montague Burton’s benefaction to the university during WW2. The Montague Burton Fellowship was instrumental in setting up the Centre for Jewish Studies during the 1990s. Scholars at Leeds explore the changing roles of emancipatory projects and critically-reflexive approaches to historiography, conduct pioneering research on issues of cultural and sexual difference in Jewish culture, especially art history, visual culture, and the presence/difference of Jews, Jewishness and Judaism in pre-modern as well as modern art and visual cultures.
