ZIONISM AND ANTISEMITISM – INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE: 24 May – 26 May 2017
Pears Institute for the study of Antisemitism, Birkbeck, University of London
CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
This timely conference will examine the interaction between Zionism and antisemitism as it has developed from the late nineteenth century through to the present day. We are interested in exploring this interaction as it developed among Zionists and antisemites, and among Jews and non-Jews more broadly. We welcome proposals that consider this theme as it has developed in theory, in practice, and in the manifold domains of cultural representation.
Call for Papers: we seek contributions from across the range of disciplines including history, political science, literary and cultural studies, anthropology, sociology and theology. The conference is open to scholars at any stage of their career, from PhD students to established scholars. Proposals from independent scholars are also welcome.
Speakers will be provided with accommodation in London as well as support towards their travel costs.
Deadline for paper proposals: Monday 14 November 2016.
A paper proposal of 200-300 words, together with a brief CV or biography, (of no more than one page) should be sent to Elaine Hudson firstname.lastname@example.org by 14 November 2016.
Full information on the conference and call for papers is available on the Pears Institute website.
