Kalamazoo 2008

43d International Congress on Medieval Studies

Call for papers: (The session is jointly sponsored by AARHMS and SSPHS)

"Beyond missionizing: the Church and religious minorities in daily life"

Much has been written on the efforts of the medieval Church to bring Europe's religious minorities-- Muslims and Jews-- into the fold by means of polemical arguments, active proselytizing and forcible missionizing campaigns. However it is becoming increasingly clear that conversionary activities directed at non-Christians often had to confront deeply

entrenched social, economic and institutional structures, some of which the Church had a direct interest in preserving. The proposed session should draw attention to the substrata of ordinary, day-to-day interactions between the clergy and the members of religious minorities. We are especially interested in contacts that took place at the local level, where the clergy engaged their non-Christian neighbors in property transactions, sought credit from Jewish moneylenders, employed Muslim and Jewish servants and laborers, exercised jurisdiction over non-Christian communities, etc. The session is intended to bring together scholars who are interested in investigating this important but understudied aspect of interfaith relations in medieval and early modern Europe. Studies examining similar interactions in non-European and/or early modern contexts are also very welcome.

Hearing Israel: Music, Culture and History at 60

University of Virginia

April 13-14, 2008

As the State of Israel approaches the sixtieth anniversary of its founding in the spring of 2008, academic scholarship continues to focus primarily on its political life, religious and ethnic diversity, and foreign policy. Much less attention has been devoted to the cultural life of Israeli society and its impact on evolving Israeli identities across generations. One of the most dynamic yet least studied spheres of Israeli culture to emerge in the six decades since statehood is its music, ranging from the worlds of pop music, rock, rap, and musikah mizrahit to classical, religious, and ethnic traditions. To examine these questions, the University of Virginia will host an historic international conference on Israeli music on April 13 and 14, 2008.

This conference aims to generate an interdisciplinary exploration of Israeli music from the multiple perspectives of ethnomusicology, history, sociology, literature, and cultural studies, among others. We invite all specialists in Israeli, Arabic, and Jewish culture to submit proposals for papers on topics related to music in Israel, broadly defined. Both historical and contemporary perspectives are welcome. Featured thematic rubrics for the conference include the role of music in national identity and nationalism among Israeli Jews and Palestinian citizens of Israel, the changing relationship between religion and secularism, popular culture and political ideology, and the evolution of musikah mizrahit in Israeli society. Along with the academic component of the programming, the conference will also feature two concert performances by major Israeli artists.

Proposals for papers should include names of participants with a brief c.v. and a 250-350 word abstract. The Jewish Studies Program at the University of Virginia will provide meals and discounted lodging for conference participants. Deadline for submission: October 15, 2007

Please send proposals or inquiries via e-mail or post to:

Date:    Fri, 3 Aug 2007 09:13:23 -0400

Dear colleagues and friends,

Panel proposal ACH 2008

In 2008 the annual ACH meeting will be held in Suriname. We would like to put a panel together on the History of the Interrelation between Slavery, Migration, Diseases and Disease concepts in the Wider Caribbean Basin.

We are looking for papers in a wide range of topics, all within the framework of the concept of Slavery, Migration, Diseases and Disease concepts in the Wider Caribbean Basin. It is about the interrelation between the natural and social environment on the one hand and health and disease on the other hand. It can be approached from many angles such as sociological, cultural, biomedical and geographical points of view as well as governmental legislation.

Suggestions for specific items: import of diseases; import of disease concepts; change of biological and/or social character of diseases in the new world; exchange of disease concepts between Europe and Caribbean colonies; but many other items are possible.

Please mail your abstracts or suggestions to Henk E Menke (MD, medical historian), email: henk(at) hemenke(dot)demon(dot)nl

Thank you,

Henk Menke (Dordrecht, Netherlands)

5. Call for Papers: Graduate Student conference: Home, Nation, and Landedness in Modern Jewish Identity (Gribetz)

From: "Jonathan Gribetz" <jonathan(dot)gribetz(at)gmail(dot)com>

via: H-JUDAIC automatic digest system <LISTSERV(at)H-NET(dot)MSU(dot)EDU>

New Approaches:  Home, Nation, and Landedness in Modern Jewish Identity

Date:  Sunday, May 11 through Monday, May 12, 2008

Location:  Harvard University, Cambridge, MA

We are pleased to announce a two-day graduate student conference at Harvard University and to issue this call for papers.

Throughout the modern period, Jews have related in a variety of ways to notions of home, nation, and landedness.  In a sense, the modern Jewish experience may be defined as a series of attempts to find a place for Jews in a newly national world.  Historically, these attempts span not only multiple incarnations of Zionism, but also Diasporist movements such as Bundism, and linguistic-national movements like Yiddishism.  Graduate students in all academic fields are invited to submit paper proposals on topics relating to Jews and various forms of Jewish and non-Jewish nationalism.  The selected papers will be presented at a two-day conference, "New Approaches:  Home, Nation, and Landedness in Modern Jewish Identity."

Papers might address (but are not limited to) the following questions:  In what ways have modern Jews conceived of home and belonging?  What is the relationship between Jewish language, literature, and nation?  In what ways have Jews imagined the Jewish nation?  How do real or imagined non-Jews fit into conceptions of Jewish nations and nationalisms?  What can be learned from a comparative approach to the study of Jewish nationalism?  To what extent have Jews been included and excluded from non-Jewish nationalisms? To what degree has the modern experience of the Jews in the Middle East been shaped by the effects of nationalism on Arab or Islamic societies?  Broadly speaking, what are the ramifications of nationalism on modern Jewish identity?

While employing these categories of "Jewish" and "non-Jewish" nationalism, we also aim to push these boundaries.  Therefore, the conference will also focus on methodological questions:  What does the study of "Jewish nationalism" mean in an age of globalization and multiculturalism?  Scholars of the twentieth century passionately debated the existence of a Jewish nation.  The claim that Jews are and have always been a nation was assumed or defended by some and later challenged by others, while those who witnessed the Holocaust and the earliest decades of the State of Israel were moved by those upheavals in Jewish history to view the preceding era through a lens heavily colored by them.  Current graduate students, in contrast, are part of an intellectual generation that overwhelmingly takes for granted the constructed and historically contingent nature of the nation and, in many cases, views the advent of the State of Israel in a more complicated light.

Given this new intellectual reality, we must now move beyond the debates of the previous generation and raise our own questions.  Indeed, the need for "new approaches" is our gathering's raison d'être.  Making the study of Jews and nationalism relevant in the 21st century requires us to ask new questions and think in fresh terms.  This conference, therefore, seeks to assemble graduate students from a wide range of disciplines-from literature to political science, history to sociology-who are engaging the problem of the relationship between Jews and nation in innovative ways.

This conference will feature panel discussions with professors from various universities and disciplines, and will provide an opportunity to receive critical feedback on works-in-progress from both colleagues and faculty members.  Select papers will be published in a special volume of conference proceedings.

Travel subsidies may be available to a limited number of students.

Please send a 300-400 word abstract, your contact information and university affiliation by October 8 to newapproaches(at)gmail(dot)com.  Please send inquiries to the same e-mail address, or call 917 514 9276.

6. Call for Papers for the Biennial Scholars Conference in American Jewish (Solomon)

From: David Solomon <dsolomon(at)ajhs(dot)cjh(dot)org>

Date: Tue, 31 Jul 2007 16:32:56 -0400.

CALL FOR PAPERS:

The Biennial Scholars Conference in American Jewish History will be held June 1-3, 2008 in Los Angeles, co-hosted by the Hebrew Union College and the Casden Institute at the University of Southern California. Held every two years to bring together scholars interested in the study of American Jewish history, this conference seeks panels on various aspects of the subject, but in particular those which will focus on the conference theme. That theme “Facing Inward, Facing Outward,” will look at the multiple interrelationships between American Jewish history and American history, modern Jewish history, and contemporary Jewish studies. As disciplinary boundaries have come to be questioned of late throughout the academy, we are interested in thinking about the current scope and meaning of each aspect of American Jewish history, namely, the American, the Jewish, and the historical components.

Proposals are due by October 15. Full panels are preferred to individual papers. Space will be limited and while graduate students are very much encouraged to participate, they should make sure to submit with more senior scholars on their panels. In addition, graduate students should consider submitting posters.

Proposals should be sent to:

Professor David E. Kaufman

Date: Monday, July 09, 2007 1:52 PM

 We are pleased to announce that a web-based searchable bibliography of unpublished Holocaust-related materials housed at the Center for Jewish History (Center) is available. It is a compilation of materials drawn from each of the partner organizations comprising the Center (American Jewish Historical Society; American Sephardi Federation; Leo Baeck Institute; Yeshiva University Museum; YIVO Institute for Jewish Research). Accessible through the Center's website, CJH Holocaust Resources: An Annotated Bibliography of Archival Holdings at the Center for Jewish History, the bibliography contains over 2,000 annotated entries, which represent records in 32 different languages. Included are almost 3,000 individuals' names, over 300 organizational names, and close to 700 locations (countries, cities, towns) with alternate languages and spellings.

 Holocaust study, as a widespread field of research throughout the world, continues to draw large numbers of researchers to the Center for whom the bibliography is an invaluable research tool. CJH Holocaust Resources will no doubt prove to be an important contribution to this field of study. The culmination of a 2 ½-year project, the bibliography was made possible through a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc.

 In addition to accessibility through our website (http://www.cjh.org/collections/bibliographies.php), the bibliography is available at: www.holocaustresources.cjh.org.

I am writing to inform you that I am writing a new blog for The Jerusalem Post titled 'The Sephardi Perspective'. I hope to use this forum as a voice for Sephardim and issues of interest to Sephardim where none has previously existed in such a format.

I am always interested in comments, so post on the blog if you have any.
