On April 10, 2013 the Program in Judaic Studies held its annual colloquium in the Judaic Studies reading room.  Two speakers from the Program gave presentations on the research in which they are currently engaged.  Eve Krakowski, Hilda & Jacob Blaustein Post-Doctoral Fellow spoke on “Jewish Marriage Choices in Medieval Egypt: Towards an Anthropology of Rabbanite Legal Practice. ”   And, Christine Hayes (shown in the photo) the Robert F & Patricia Ross Weis Professor of Religious Studies spoke on “ ‘ In the West, they laughed at him:’ The Babylonian Talmud’s Mocking Realists.”  A light dinner was served between the two presentations.  The colloquium is an annual event in which both faculty members, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students have an opportunity to talk about their work and receive feed-back from their colleagues.
