Tadas Januąauskas
A Project of Acculturation? Jewish Integration into the Lithuanian National Agenda

Tadas Januąauskas joined Central European University after completing a BA in History at Vilnius University. He received in 2010 his MA in Nationalism Studies with a specialization in Jewish Studies. Having returned to CEU in 2012, he continues his academic career in the PhD program of the History Department. Tadas researches the acculturation-assimilation processes of the Eastern European Jewries; his primary interest is in the shift of Jewish identity in Lithuania during the interwar period.

Andor Kelenhegyi received two MA degrees from Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest (in History, and in Hebrew Philology) specializing in the history of Biblical exegesis, and one from Central European University (in Medieval Studies). His primary research interest lies in Late Antique Jewish-Christian interrelations, expecially in the field of exegetic thought. He was accepted to Medieval Studies Department at CEU as a doctoral student in 2012.
