Junior Research Fellows to Join Woolf Team
30 May 2013
The Woolf Institute is delighted to announce the appointment of two Junior Research Fellows: Gorazd Andrejč and Esther-Miriam Wagner. Both will join the team this Michaelmas to pursue research in the multi-disciplinary study of relations between Jews, Christians and Muslims.
Gorazd Andrejč is a CJCR alumni and Associate Lecturer at the University of Exeter, who is currently completing his Doctorate in the Philosophy of Religion, examining the question of the relation between felt experience which Christians often take as religious, and the belief in God. His other research interests include philosophical aspects of interfaith relations, especially those between Jews, Christians and Muslims in the countries of former Yugoslavia.
Esther-Miriam Wagner joins the Woolf from her role as Research associate at the Taylor-Schechter Genizah Unit, Cambridge University Library after completing her doctorate on Judaeo-Arabic letters at the University of Cambridge. Her main research interests include Judaeo-Arabic, sociolinguistics, Yiddish, and Jewish-Muslim relations in Egypt and Muslim Spain as reflected in the Genizah sources.
