There’s still time to propose a panel or submit a poster for the upcoming online conference organized by the POLIN museum in Warsaw — What’s New, What’s Next? Innovative Methods, New Sources, and Paradigm Shifts in Jewish Studies to be held October 3-7, 2021.
The interdisciplinary online conference will “explore new directions in the study of East and Central European Jews”:
What constitutes Jewish studies today and in which direction should we be heading? Which paradigms are guiding the field today? How are theoretical and methodological developments in the humanities and social sciences shaping Jewish studies? How are scholars working in a broad range of disciplines – history, social sciences, literature, visual and performing arts, and other disciplines – contributing to the field? What are interdisciplinary approaches contributing to the field? What is the impact of studies of Jewish life in the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth on a wider understanding of world history?
Deadline for submission is April 30, 2021.
