The Centre for German-Jewish Studies at the University of Sussex and Woodbrooke Centre for Postgraduate Quaker Studies, Birmingham, invite submissions for a groundbreaking joint one-day conference to be held at the University of Sussex on October 13, 2017, under the title “Jews and Quakers: On the borders of acceptability.”
The conference aims to explore the impact on the thought, theology, and praxis of Jewish and Quaker communities following experiences of persecution, political alienation, and outsider status in the wider communities in which they have lived in Europe, North America, and globally since the seventeenth century. It offers a rare opportunity for researchers to identify and explore such parallels and differences as might be found between the experiences of Jews and Quakers.
The coordinators welcome papers from established scholars, postdoctoral early career researchers, and doctoral candidates. The deadline for submissions is April 10, 2017. More details can be found below or on their website:
