II International Conference „Jews in Galicia” is open for applications. The conference will be held in Kraków on September 10-12, 2019. 

The first  conference on “Jews in Galicia” that took place in Rzeszow in 2017 was very successful and gathered academics from many countries that are interested in research on Jewish heritage in Galicia. The selected papers from the conference were published as a book “Z dziejów i kultury Żydów w Galicji/From the History and Culture of Jews in Galicia”, Rzeszów 2018.  That is why the organizers would like to continue this initiative by organizing the second conference on “Jews in Galicia”, this time in Kraków. 

History, culture and heritage of Galician Jewry is becoming a popular field of research lately, but many aspects still require a detailed research and study. The aim of this conference is to present the state of research on Jews in Galicia and their heritage.  Chronologically the conference will focus on years  1772-1918, but we invite also presentations on the heritage of Galician Jewry in a wider historical context. The invitation is directed to all scholars who are interested in and dealing with a topic related to Jews in Galicia and would like to present an original papers on that topic. We are inviting proposals from the one of the following fields of research:

  • History of Jews in Galicia – political, social and economic aspects
  • Culture of Galician Jewry
  • Religious life and multicultural relations
  • New sources to historical studies of Galician Jewry
  • Memory and commemoration

The language of the conference will be English. Applications for participation in the conference (see the attached form) should be sent by June 15, 2019. Along with the application, please send the paper abstract (500-700 words) and a short CV. The conference program will be announced by the end of June 2019.
