Postgraduate Conference on Jewish Studies in the Nordic Countries - OBS change of the dates!

16 september 2024 09:00 till 17 september 2024 19:00 Konferens

We encourage creative proposals centering on Jewish ideas, objects, individuals, and communities in the broad Nordic region. Call for papers is open until June 21, 2024.

CTR together with the UCL Hebrew and Jewish Studies organize a hybrid conference offering an opportunity for postgraduate students working in the area of Jewish Studies in Nordic countries to engage in meaningful discussions, form a network, and present their research. The event is an interdisciplinary conference dedicated to the study of Jewish histories, cultures, and languages across the Nordic region. 

The past few years have seen a growing recognition in the academic community of the need for intellectual forums which can be accessed irrespective of location or financial means. Our event will meet this demand, providing an online platform where postgraduate and early career researchers working on some aspect of Jewish life in Scandinavia can build connections and share research in a fruitful and encouraging environment. You can register to the conference here.

This year’s pilot will be completely live and online, comprising panels of 20-minute papers and discussion. We seek to bring together researchers from across departments and universities, to form a sense of fellowship in our interdisciplinary field. To help participants meet and connect with one another, the event will offer plenty of opportunities for virtual socialising. 

Our key note speakers will be: Prof. Lily Kahn, Dr. Riitta Valijärvi, UCL and Dr. Jon Reitan, NTNU.

We encourage creative proposals centring on Jewish ideas, objects, individuals, and communities in the broad Nordic region. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Early and modern histories and cultures 
  • Linguistics and languages 
  • Literatures and communication
  • Sociological approaches to Jewish integration and identifications 
  • Transnational perspectives

Please submit a 200 word abstract and a short biographical note to Noa Ben-David (uclhben@ucl.ac.uk) and Magdalena Dziaczkowska (magdalena.dziaczkowska@ctr.lu.se) by June 21, 2024. Feel free to get in touch with either one of us, if you have any questions.

Please note the change of the dates of the conference!
