The James R. Bullock Visiting Chair

The James R. Bullock Visiting Chair in Canadian Studies

The James R. Bullock Visiting Chair in Canadian Studies was established in 1995 in honour of Mr. James R. Bullock. The chair is a revolving one and aims to invite prominent Canadian authors, scientists, scholars, and policy makers in order to enhance the field of Canadian Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and in Israel. The individuals asked to hold the Bullock Chair are selected on the basis of excellence in their respective areas of specialization and their ability to strengthen and deepen the relationship between Canada and Israel.
The Bullock Chair appointment carries with it airfare to Israel, accommodations for a period of 1-3 weeks while visiting at the Hebrew University, and an honorarium of C$2,500. The holder of the Bullock Chair shares her or his knowledge and experience with colleagues in the academic and professional communities. This is achieved through teaching seminars and delivering a major lecture to a general audience on a topic which will have a meaningful public impact.
