Frankel Center: Polish Jewish Studies Workshop
April 3 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
One event on April 4, 2017 at 8:00am
Founded in 2013, the Polish Jewish Studies Initiative is an international and interdisciplinary working group of scholars from the humanities and social sciences involved in research and teaching at the intersection of Polish and Jewish studies. This collaboration between the University of Illinois at Chicago, Princeton University, and the University of Michigan has generated a series of gatherings bringing together scholars, public intellectuals, and artists working on Polish Jewish themes.
The aim of the Polish Jewish Studies Initiative and this workshop is to establish an international forum for communication among scholars working in the growing field of Polish Jewish studies; to identify theoretical and methodological developments and new research; and to create a forum for scholars, educators, and activists who rigorously pursue the study of Polish and Jewish cultures more intentionally.
The 2017 workshop is focused on changing approaches to Polish Jewish culture, scholarship and identity under the rubric of “Generations and Genealogies.” Confirmed speakers include Adam Michnik, Antony Polonsky, and Agata Tuszyńska.
