This is a reminder that the 2nd Annual Jewish Studies Graduate Student Conference is still accepting abstracts through November 18, 2013.
Conference Title: “Genesis to Yesterday: Memory, Representation, and Jewish Identity”
Keynote Speaker: Laura Levitt, Temple University
Date and Place: February 20-21, 2014; Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana.
The Robert A. and Sandra S. Borns Jewish Studies Program at Indiana University will be hosting a graduate conference exploring the dialectic relationship between Jews and memory, Jews and cultural productions of memory, and the representation of Jewishness through the lens of memory. Appropriate proposals might explore such topics as the role of memory politics in America, Europe, or Israel; Jewish memoirs; memory represented in literature; theater, film, and music; the place of memory in rabbinics and Jewish law; Holocaust memorialization by Jews and Gentiles; and testimony and memory. The conference is designed to encompass a range of academic subjects, while producing a sustained and focused debate on the importance of memory in Judaism, Jewish culture, and Jewish identity.
