Conference. What’s New, What’s Next? Innovative Methods, New Sources, and Paradigm Shifts in Jewish Studies

Wednesday, October 6, 2021
10:00 AM-4:00 PM
This interdisciplinary online conference, hosted by POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, will bring together scholars in a wide range of fields: anthropology, sociology, history, memory studies, museology, art history, and political science, among others.

"What’s New, What’s Next? Innovative Methods, New Sources, and Paradigm Shifts in Jewish Studies" will explore new directions in the study of East and Central European Jews and the place of Jewish studies in the humanities today.

Conference participants will explore these questions: What constitutes Jewish studies today and in which direction should we be heading? Which paradigms are guiding the field today? How are theoretical and methodological developments in the humanities and social sciences shaping Jewish studies? How are scholars working in a broad range of disciplines – history, social sciences, literature, visual and performing arts, and other disciplines – contributing to the field? What are interdisciplinary approaches contributing to the field? What is the impact of studies of Jewish life in the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth on a wider understanding of world history?
