Dear Vitaliy V. Tikhonov,

We would like to solicit your help to promote the summer course on
“Polemos/Pulmus: Ways of Confrontation in Judaism, Paganism and
Christianity in Late Antiquity” among your colleagues, your graduate
students, or any interested researchers.

Course Dates: July 9-20, 2012
Location: Central European University (CEU), Budapest, Hungary,
Detailed course description: http://summer.ceu.hu/polemos-2012

CEU's summer school invites applications from doctoral students,
postdocs, junior faculty and researchers from all over the world.

The course aims at exploring the nature and various ways of
confrontation between and within Early and Rabbinic Judaism, the Early
Church, and Pagan religions and schools of thought. The sessions discuss
how these movements coped with conflicts within and without; what their
strategies were in confronting and accommodating foreign ideas,
competing religions, worldly powers or internal subversion; and what
role these external and internal confrontations played in shaping them.

Course faculty include Daniel Boyarin, Shaye J. D. Cohen, John M.
Dillon, Mark Edwards and Guy G. Stroumsa.

The application deadline is February 15, 2012.

Financial aid is available.
