New Approaches: Home, Nation, and Landedness in Modern Jewish Identity
Date: Sunday, May 11 through Monday, May 12, 2008
Location: Harvard University, Cambridge, MA
We are pleased to announce a two-day graduate student conference at Harvard University and to issue this call for papers.
Throughout the modern period, Jews have related in a variety of ways to notions of home, nation, and landedness. In a sense, the modern Jewish experience may be defined as a series of attempts to find a place for Jews in a newly national world. Historically, these attempts span not only multiple incarnations of Zionism, but also Diasporist movements such as Bundism, and linguistic-national movements like Yiddishism. Graduate students in all academic fields are invited to submit paper proposals on topics relating to Jews and various forms of Jewish and non-Jewish nationalism. The selected papers will be presented at a two-day conference, “New Approaches: Home, Nation, and Landedness in Modern Jewish Identity.”
Please send a 300-400 word abstract, your contact information and university affiliation by October 8 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send inquiries to the same e-mail address, or call 917-514-9276.
