From Emancipation to Remembrance: New Approaches to Research on
Hungarian Jewry and the Holocaust in Hungary - International
symposium for doctoral candidates

28.03.-31.03.2007, Holocaust Memorial Center, Budapest


Deadline: 15.01.2007

It has been almost three years since the opening of the Holocaust
Memorial Center in Budapest. At that time an international conference
was held at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences ( The Holocaust in
Hungary: A European Perspective ) to mark the 60th anniversary of the
Hungarian Holocaust. Since then, new young experts in the field of
Holocaust and Genocide Studies have emerged. Therefore, it is
worthwhile to evaluate what the upcoming generation can add to the
studies of Hungarian Jewry in general and of the Holocaust in
particular.

The symposium invites papers that seek to explore new approaches
toward research on Hungarian Jewry. We are seeking research based on
the problems of the Holocaust through a sociological or individual-
psychological point of view, and presentations about the
philosophical problems concerning the memory of the Holocaust. The
organizers also welcome studies that examine the events
of the
Holocaust or the history of Hungarian Jewry from a gender-related
perspective.

The symposium will be a workshop that gives doctoral candidates the
opportunity to present their (Ph.D.) projects and the ideas that are
connected to these projects. These can be of methodical,
methodological, or textual nature. Inviting international students
and established experts (to lead the panel discussions) in the field
of Jewish studies aims to strengthen the academic exchange between
East and West, North and South, and, last but not least, between
students and scholars. This is also seen as a contribution to raise
historical awareness beyond borders and regions and an attempt to
connect Hungarian history to the overall history of the European
continent.

Besides the gender-related approach, possible topics for panel
discussions could include questions of Jewish identity, research on
Jewish political and economical
involvement in Hungarian society,
aspects of Zionism and emigration, Anti-Semitism and the Shoah and
how it shaped the lives of those who survived as well as questions of
responsibility for the annihilation of the Hungarian Jews. One panel
should also focus on how Hungarian society came to terms with its
past (if so ), and how remembrance and education about the Shoah is
or should be realized in Hungarian society today. A panel that deals
with representations of the Holocaust could include the following
subordinate points:

- representation and understanding;

- the problems faced by Holocaust representation;

- research on a range of post-war texts across different media

- literature, film, museums, memorials, and monuments; theories of
Holocaust representation.

Especially at this point, the conference seeks to draw a line from
Hungarian to European history and curiously ask for
intertwinement.

Proposals (1-page abstracts) as well as a short bibliographical note
should be sent by email to workshop@hdke.hu

Queries can be sent to doreen_eschinger@yahoo.de

Only contributions in English will be accepted.

Completed articles should be 10 pages in length and are to be
submitted by March 1, 2007 at the latest.
