Subject: Jewish Labor Bund. A Workshop for Graduate Students and Junior
CfP: Beyond Internal Paradigms. New Perspectives on the History of the
Jewish Labor Bund. A Workshop for Graduate Students and Junior Scholars,
28.4. -- 1.5.2011, Vilnius, Lithuania
The Vilnius Yiddish Institute and the Centre for Studies of the Culture
and History of East European Jews hope to co-sponsor a workshop in
Vilnius, Lithuania on the history of the Jewish Workers' Bund from April
28 to May 1, 2011. The intent of this workshop is to nurture dialogue
among those who have embarked on study of the Bund in recent years by
encouraging reconsideration of existing works, and by sparking discussion
and debate on the both the utility and the significance of the
methodologies, approaches, and sources now in use.
The workshop is open to advanced graduate students currently working on
relevant dissertations, post-doctoral students, and junior scholars, and
will also be attended by senior scholars who will serve as chairs and as
commentators. Conference sessions will be conducted in English. We are
eager to foster new perspectives, and particularly welcome proposals
dealing with gender issues, the relationship between politics and culture
in the Bundist movement, Bundist history after the Holocaust, the
relationship of the Bund to other parties and organizations, and proposals
which compare the functioning and histories of Bundist organizations in
The workshop is being organized by Prof. Gertrud Pickhan (Free University
of Berlin, Germany) and Prof. Jack Jacobs (John Jay College and the
Graduate Center, City University of New York, USA) with the assistance of
Rebekka Denz (Otto-Friedrich-University Bamberg, Germany), and Frank Wolff
(Bielefeld University, Germany).
Paper proposals should be submitted no later than August 1, 2010, should
be submitted in English, should be no longer than 400 words long, should
also include a c.v., and should be submitted via e-mail to
conference2011 at bundism.net, as should any inquiries concerning matters
