Am 14.03.2013 findet in der Universität Antwerpen die Konferenz Places of encounter: Jews and non-Jews in the Low Countries between 1500 and 1800 statt. Zitat aus dem Call for Papers:
„On 14 March 2013 the Institute of Jewish Studies (IJS) of the University of Antwerp will host the conference Places of encounter: Jews and non-Jews in the Low Countries between 1500 and 1800. This conference will coincide with the return of David Ruderman to Antwerp as the visiting chair of Jewish-Christian relations at the Institute of Jewish Studies (IJS) and the University Center Saint-Ignatius (UCSIA).
The organizers invite paper proposals around the theme of ‘places of encounter’. We are eager for papers that test Ruderman’s new early modern Jewish history by exploring places of intellectual, artistic, scholarly, economic, religious or political encounter between Jews and non-Jews, in the Low Countries (i.e. both the Southern and Northern Netherlands) between 1500 and 1800.
Senior and junior scholars as well as graduate students are welcome to apply. Proposals should be no longer than 400 words in length and should be accompanied by a short CV.“
Die Deadline für das Einreichen von Beitragsvorschlägen ist der 01.10.2012.
