The Jewish Studies Digital Humanities Showcase
The EAJS Digital Forum exists to supports scholars and digital initiatives. It seeks to foster teaching and training as well as methodological reflection and debate, and, in doing so, aims to facilitate productive links between Jewish Studies and the Digital Humanities. As part of this programme, the Digital Forum will be showcasing projects of interest to the membership via the EAJS newsflash and website.
