December Symposium


Wednesday, December 12, 2018


Jewish history is riddled with discussions of diaspora and homeland, exile and belonging. This day-long conference will explore Jewish life in Muslim contexts within the critical analytical framework of the spatial turn. Encompassing a variety of geographies, the symposium’s four panels will search for the place of the Jew in concentric circles, including cities, homelands, states and empires; from the clatter of a coffeehouse to the policies of empire, and ultimately, to the imagined sense of self and community.
