Thank you very much to all our members for your patience while we made decisions around the British Association for Jewish Studies conference on ‘World in Crisis: Reflections and Responses from Antiquity to the Present’, which was due to be held from the 13th-15th July 2020 in Southampton.
The safety of all our members in the current crisis is of paramount concern, so we are very sorry to announce that the conference is postponed. We are sure that this is not unexpected, but we waited to make this announcement so that we could also provide information about our alternative plans. We are following the pattern of many subject associations and rolling over plans for annual conferences by a year. As such, we are able to report that the ‘World in Crisis’ conference will now be held in Southampton from the 5th-7th July 2021. Please direct any queries about the conference to BAJS2020@soton.ac.uk
We are also looking into the logistics of holding a small-scale virtual event in July, including an AGM, and we will be in touch with further information in due course.
Many thanks to all of you for your support in these extraordinarily challenging times.
With best wishes,
The BAJS conference team
