>Interdisciplinary International Conference: Cultural Continuity in the
>Diaspora: Paris and Berlin in 1917-1937. The Experience of Russian Jews in
>an Era of Social Change.
>Bath, England, 8-10 September 2008
>Both the beginning and end of Communism in Russia transformed the life of
>its Jewish population. Jews in the USSR adapted to these changes, while
>many fled into emigration, where they made significant contributions to all
>aspects of an emergent Russian culture abroad. Our aim is to advance the
>study of Russian Jewish culture at home and in exile by systematically
>exploring the ways in which the cultural values of Russian Jews were
>transmitted between generations.
>With the support of the Leverhulme Trust (UK), a programme of conferences
>and workshops will assemble and analyze texts, artwork and other media,
>focusing on the émigré centres of Berlin and Paris, as well as the USSR
>itself, during the first two decades of Soviet rule, 1917-1937.
>The first conference will take place at the University of Bath on 8-10
>September 2008. It is expected that participants will propose a selection
>of primary literary and artistic sources derived from publishing and other
>outlets in Paris, Berlin and the USSR to be examined within their
>historical context, and develop a range of appropriate methodological
>approaches to be adopted for this programme of research.
>Although the Call For Papers is now formally closed, we are willing to
>consider late proposals if they fit well into the conference theme. Those
>interested in attending should contact Peter Wagstaff ([log in to unmask])
>or Olga Tabachnikova ([log in to unmask]).
