Description

Historien intar en central plats i judisk självförståelse. Det är ingen slump att arkeologi är en israelisk nationalhobby. Det förflutna ger identitet och skapar samhörighet. Men frågan är vad som är historia och vad som är minne? Den frågan följer oss som en röd tråd genom den här kursen.

Den här kursen ger en grundlig introduktion till judisk historia och kultur, där vi följer det judiska folkets historia från uttåget ur Egypten fram till modern tid. Du bekantar dig med händelser och platser som fyller en viktig funktion för judisk identitet och tradition. Kursen ger också en överblick över judarnas politiska och sociala förhållanden i olika historiska kontexter. Vi stannar upp vid några av den judiska historiens stora personligheter och diskuterar hur deras liv och verk präglat judisk historia och kultur samt lyfter fram några teman som under historiens gång präglat judisk självförståelse.

Kursen går att läsa som fristående kurs såväl på campus och som på distans via internet. På campuskursen (JUDA31) kompletteras klassrumsundervisningen med lektioner och information via internet varför dator och internetuppkoppling är en förutsättning för att följa undervisningen i sin helhet. På distanskursen (JUDD31) sker all undervisning via internet. Examinationen sker kontinuerligt under kursens gång genom quiz och skriftliga instuderingsuppgifter.

How to apply

Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application periods: October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

Extended application deadline

Sometimes the application deadline is extended for a specific programme or course. In these cases you will find the message "open for late application" by the programme/course information on universityadmissions.se. You apply with the usual application steps. As long as this message is showing, it is possible to apply, but late applications are processed in order of date, so it is still important to apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the programme/course does not have an extended deadline, it is not possible to apply late.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
