Katharina Keim is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the John Rylands Research Institute and the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, and a member of the Centre for Jewish Studies at the University of Manchester.
Katharina completed her BA in Religious and Theological Studies at Cardiff University in 2008, and her MA in Jewish Studies at the University of Manchester in 2009. Katharina continued her studies at the University of Manchester, undertaking a PhD in Jewish studies which she completed in 2014. Her doctoral thesis was entitled, "Pirqei deRabbi Eliezer: Structure, Coherence, Intertextuality, and Historical Context".
Katharina's current project, "The Samaritan Correspondence of Moses Gaster", will bring Gaster's correspondence with the Samaritan community of Nablus (c. 1904-33) into conversation with Gaster's Samaritan manuscripts and archives, held at the John Rylands Library, to gain insight into Gaster's collecting and to evaluate Gaster's scholarship of the texts and objects he collected from the Samaritan community. 

Research interests

Katharina's research interests include the development, transmission, and translation of traditions found in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim texts from Antiquity to the Middle Ages. Her postdoctoral project on the Samaritan collections of Moses Gaster extends these interests to include the transmission of tradition between Muslims and Samaritans, and the development of Samaritan tradition into the Modern period.
