TitelVIIIth EAJS congress: Past and present perspectives in Jewish Studies

Past and present perspectives in Jewish Studies

JULY, 23-27, 2006, Moscow

The Executive Committee of the European Association for Jewish Studies is glad to announce that the next congress of the EAJS will take place in Moscow on July, 23-27, 2006. It will be the first EAJS Congress held in Eastern Europe. We hope to bring together scholars from both Eastern and Western Europe.

The theme of the Congress is ‘Past and present perspectives in Jewish Studies’.
This theme focuses on the philosophy and the prospects of Jewish Studies. There has been no lack of ideas and research during last decades, yet there is a feeling that a lot can be changed and renewed now.

• Are we moving into the age of Post-Postmodernism?
• Are we returning to old patterns?
• Do we need meta-history once again?

Members of the European Association for Jewish Studies and all other scholars in the various fields of Jewish Studies are invited to participate in the VIIIth EAJS Congress. Papers in all areas of Jewish Studies will be considered, even if not directly related to the Congress theme. Scholars are welcome to attend the Congress whether or not they intend to present a paper.

The congress is organized by the European Association for Jewish Studies, the sole umbrella organization representing this field of university studies in the continent. The main aim of the Association is the encouragement and support of the teaching of Jewish studies at university level in Europe and to further an understanding of the importance of Jewish culture and civilization and of the impact it has had on European cultures over many centuries.
Local organizer:
International Center for Russian & East European Jewish Studies
Moscow Center for University Teaching of Jewish Civilization SEFER
