2023 Membership

Annual membership is an important sign of support, sharing and belonging to the Enoch Seminar community, which we warmly ask of all who participate in our activities. It will give you the opportunity, during that year, to claim your status of “Member of the Enoch Seminar” and write it officially on your C.V., participate as a speaker at our events, receive additional information about our activities, and pay reduced meeting registration fees.

Membership is open to professors, lecturers, postdocs, independent scholars, and graduate students, who are active in the field of Second Temple Judaism, early Judaism, early Christianity, and Islam, and cognate fields, who want to shape the vision, mission, and work of the Enoch Seminar. It must be formally confirmed by the Board of Directors. In our commitment to diversity, we welcome international scholars at different stages in their academic careers, members of different religious, racial, ethnic and geographical backgrounds and sexual orientation, and promote gender parity and opportunities. The Enoch Seminar requires the highest level of professional and ethical behavior, free of all forms of harassment and discrimination, from all its members. Membership can be temporarily suspended or revoked at the request of our Professional Ethics Committee.

The Enoch Seminar is an informal gathering of international scholars, affiliated to the Michigan Center for Early Christian Studies, a non-profit organization registered with the State of Michigan. We do not rely upon permanent employees. None of us receives any honorarium as directors, board members, chairs, speakers or respondents. $10,000-$15,000 is what we annually need to sustain our activities (website, webinar, the work of our secretary, small grants). The collected funds are spent exclusively for this purpose and no other purpose. We live and thrive only on the generosity and continuous support of our members. Donations by non-members are also welcome and gladly recognized.

These are the suggested fees for the year 2023:

$150+: Donors

$100: Regular Members

$50: Discounted Members (e.g.: graduate students, post-docs, part-time faculty, scholars with low salaries or limited support from their institution, retirees, etc.)

You decide how much you want to contribute, based on your personal situation (no questions asked, no explanations needed). The amount of individual donations is not publicly disclosed and even the smallest contribution ($10 or $20) is gladly received as an important and very welcome sign of support and will count as membership. We would like all our friends to be listed as members, no matter how much they contribute, and leave no one behind.

Membership is required for speakers at all our events. Attendance at online meetings for non-speakers remains open and free of charge.
