The Ninth Annual Conference of the Society for Sephardic Studies
Sephardi Jews between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean
Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Lisbon University
June 24-25 2019
Amphitheatres II, III, IV
The main purpose of the Ninth Annual Conference of the Society for Sephardic Studies (in keeping with this year’s location) is to explore from a broader chronological, geographical, and thematic perspective the long and multifaceted experience of Sephardi Jews between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. While bearing in mind that the Ocean stretches from Northern Europe to the confines of North America and the Strait of Tierra del Fuego, we would like to examine the affinities between different experiences and imperial policies, economic, social, cultural and political agents, and the new state entities of the 19th and 20th centuries. These relations are increasingly being understood in a dialectical way.
