      Ben Outhwaite has been Head of the Genizah Research Unit in Cambridge University Library since 2006. His PhD thesis, on the grammatical description of Hebrew letters in the Cairo Genizah, was completed in 1999 under the supervision of Professor Geoffrey Khan. Ben’s current research interests revolve around Hebrew and its use and transmission in the Middle Ages: the vocalization traditions of biblical (and post-biblical) Hebrew, medieval Hebrew language and the documentary history of the communities who deposited manuscripts into the Cairo Genizah. Among numerous publications, he is the author, with M. C. Davis, of Hebrew Bible Manuscripts in the Cambridge Genizah Collections, vols. 3 and 4 (Cambridge University Press, 2003), and the editor, with Esther-Miriam Wagner and Bettina Beinhoff, of Scribes as Agents of Language Change (Berlin: De Gruyter, 2013).
