TitelInternationaler Workshop:Jewish Migration and Transnationalism: Multidisciplinary Perspectives
BeschreibungMigration has long been a major characteristic of Jewish life, including in modern times. Since the late nineteenth century, more than eight million Jews have crossed continental boundaries, reshaping the Jews' spatial dispersion from less socially and economically deve-loped areas, which were also not always sympathetic to them, to the most advanced and democratic countries as well as to Israel. Yet, the directions of theses migration movements have not been consistent; rather, Jewish migration may be an iterative phenomenon, origin countries later becoming preferred destinations and vice versa.

Likewise, the experience of Jews' adaptation to their host countries has changed considerably. While immigrants, as well as other minorities, were once expected to integrate into the destination's social and economic mainstream, adopt its culture, and give it its undi-vided loyalty, the attachment of today's immigrants to their host country and homeland is more complex and fluid. Geographic space and social and cultural space no longer fully overlap. This attests to the broader ideological and social transformation occasioned by plu-ralism and multiculturalism which legitimizes minorities' efforts to preserve their ethnic identi-fication and narratives associated with their homelands. Together with the new structural characteristics of recent immigration, including replenishment via additional immigrants and settlement in new gateway locales, today's scientific discourse on immigrant integration makes room for new concepts of the meaning of assimilation, bringing to the fore such terms as segmented assimilation, ethnic niches, transnationalism, hybrid identities, and dual citizenship.

This workshop, a two days in length, is aimed at discussing various complementary aspects of Jewish migration and transnationalism. It starts with a general presentation on the Jewish international migration system, reviewing the magnitude, directions, and causes of these migration flows and the immigrants' characteristics from 1880 to the present. This will be followed by different sessions, each including one presenter from one of the institutions associated with the Center for Jewish Studies Berlin-Brandenburg, one presenter from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and a moderator. The sessions focus on such topics as migration experiences, transnational identities, cultural preservation and adjustment, migrati-on in Jewish literature, and documentation and archives of Jewish migration.
