About the Mosse Program in History

The main goal of the George L. Mosse Program is to encourage academic collaboration between the two universities where historian George L. Mosse worked and taught, the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. At the center of the Mosse Program is a student exchange program that began in 2000. This student exchange includes graduate students from both the Hebrew University and the University of Wisconsin, who spend an academic year at the parallel institute and receive generous fellowships and research grants. The Mosse Program also maintains a faculty exchange program.

The Mosse Program also organizes the prestigious George L. Mosse Lecture Series. These lectures, which alternate between the two universities once every two years, are given by leading historians and are open to the public. The University of Wisconsin Press later publishes these lectures in the George L. Mosse Book Series. This series also publishes monographs on intellectual and cultural history. Furthermore, the Mosse Program facilitates the translation of George L. Mosse's works into Hebrew.

Additionally, the Mosse Program encourages a variety of other academic activities and collaborations between the two universities, including conferences, scholarly visits and other activities. It also supports courses and prizes for BA students.
