Dr Tomek Kamusella on Teaching Exchange with Tel Aviv University
March 5, 2013 Leave a comment
In mid-January Tomek Kamusella went to Israel on a staff exchange, where he delivered two lectures. The annual scheme, thanks to which an Israeli scholar comes to St Andrews, and a member of staff from History reciprocates by visiting Israel, was established between the University of St Andrews and the Tel Aviv University more than two decades ago.
It began with Professor Miriam Eliav-Fledon’s fascination with Scotland, and especially, St Andrews. She did research for a semester at our university and set up the Tel Aviv exchange. Any member of staff in History can apply to participate in the scheme, which is currently directed by Dr Chandrika Kaul. St Andrews staff must give at least one lecture while in Tel Aviv.
