Junior Scholars Conference in Jewish History

The Junior Scholars Conference in German-Jewish History aims to bring together a small transatlantic group of junior scholars to explore new research and questions in 19th- and 20th-century Jewish history, contextualized with work on people belonging to other milieus. In the course of two days, the participants give short presentations (20 min.) of their individual research projects and engage in discussions on sources, methodology, and theory in order to assess current and future trends in the modern history of Jews in Germany, Europe, the Americas, and beyond.

The bienniel program is targeted specifically for post-doctoral scholars, recent PhDs, as well as students in the final stages of their dissertations. The exact theme of each conference varies year to year.

The current CfP will appear below when available.
