Announcement ID: 153477

A major international interdisciplinary conference on the histories and 
cultures of antisemitism in England, from the Middle Ages to the present 
day. To be held at Birkbeck College, University of London, Bloomsbury, 
London: 9-11 July 2007.

Plenary speakers:
Anthony Julius (Birkbeck College/London Consortium, University of London)
Miri Rubin (Queen Mary, University of London)
Ira Katznelson (Columbia University)

Key questions to be addressed include:

Can we talk of a distinctly English kind of antisemitism?

Is antisemitism inherent in Englishness?

What is, or has been, the relationship between 'high' or intellectual 
English culture and antisemitism?

How far can specific English contexts be seen to have engendered 
antisemitism?

Is there a meaningful history of English philosemitism, and what is its 
relationship to antisemitism?

In what ways is England's antisemitic past reflected in the present?

What is the relationship between English antisemitism and communism, 
socialism, fascism, Zionism, Islamism, secularism, liberalism, and other 
ideologies?

How is antisemitism mediated in English art, literature and other 
cultural forms?

What are the contours of continuity and transformation in English 
antisemitism?

To what extent have the terms 'antisemitism' and 'Englishness' become 
redundant? How much use do they retain?

Papers from all disciplines, or interdisciplinary submissions, are 
welcomed; panel proposals of 3 speakers are also welcomed. Papers will 
be of 20 minutes duration. Paper proposals of no more than 150 words 
should be sent as soon as possible and by 15 December 2006 to Dr Anthony
