Collection Description

Biographical Note

Oded Borowski was born in Palestine to Meri-Shalom and Alina Kleinman Borowski on August 26th, 1939. Borowski was a member of Kibbutz Lahav, in the region of the northeastern Negev. At Lahav, he was involved in various types of agriculture. It was during this time that he began his studies of the land through Absalom Institute for Homeland Studies in Tel Aviv, Israel.

To continue his schooling Borowski came to Detroit where he studied at Midrasha/College of Jewish Studies earning a Bachelor of Hebrew Letters and a BA in Anthropology from Wayne State University. At the University of Michigan, he earned an MA and a PhD in Near Eastern Studies, completing his PhD in 1979. When Borowski first arrived at Emory he has was a part of the Romance Languages Department where he helped found both the Hebrew and Arabic language programs. Later in 1988, he directed the addition of a new Near Eastern Studies program that is known today as Middle Eastern and South Asian Studies (MESAS). Borowski teaches both graduate and undergraduate students at Emory.

At the beginning of the 1970s Borowski began his participation in archeological excavations and in 1976 helped to begin the Lahav Research Project. The project centers around a site known as Tell Halif. Borowski managed Phase III and IV of the Lahav Project. Along with managing and doing research on Lahav, he has also published many books on his findings at Lahav.

Borowski married Marcia Weil on August 24th, 1964. The couple has two children.
