Call for Papers

We invite proposals for papers to be presented at the Fourth Junior Scholars Conference in German Jewish History, to take place at the Institute for the History of the German Jews in Hamburg in July 2015. We seek proposals specifically from post-doctoral scholars, recent PhDs, as well as those in the final stages of their dissertations. The aim of the conference is to bring together a small transatlantic group of junior scholars to discuss and explore new research and questions in German Jewish history and 19th and 20th history more broadly. During a two-day workshop, the participants will give short presentations (20 min.) of their individual research projects and engage in discussions on sources, methodology, and theory to assess current and future trends in the historiography on German Jewry.
