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 
different areas.
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 
related to this project.
