Event description

Description

Conference launching volume 29 of Polin: Studies in Polish Jewry

Volume 29 of Polin: Studies in Polish Jewry investigates Jewish historiography in three East European hubs: Congress Poland, the Russian Empire, and Galicia, in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Looking beyond established paradigms, it adds to a growing literature seeking to transcend the trope of Jewish cultural insularity. It explores the tension inherent in the project of writing Jewish history in Eastern Europe: between the practice of exploring Jewish past in the communal setting, and the need to inscribe Jews into the social, political, economic and cultural fabric of the region.

The event will feature two panels with presentations by the volume’s editors and authors, and a roundtable with Norman Davies, Edyta Gawron, Jan Kubik and Antony Polonsky. It concludes with a slide show by Natalia Romik (UCL Bartlett School of Architecture) about her trip with the Nomadic Shtetl Archive through small Polish towns in the summer of 2016.

Price includes tea and coffee and kosher lunch.

Early booking is advised.
