Ofer Pogorelsky


I have a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE program) from the Hebrew University and an MA from the Department of History as a fellow of the Programme for the Study of Late Antiquity. Currently, I'm a PhD candidate at the Department of History, interested in the social and cultural history of the land of Israel and the Near East in the Roman, Byzantine and Early Muslim periods. Within the Project "Traces and Treasures of German-Jewish History in Israel" I work on mapping and cataloguing the archive of Prof. L.A. Mayer, which is stored at the Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem.
