New Directions: Sephardi/Mizrahi Migrations in Global Contexts
International Conference Dec. 17-19, 2019
Ramat-Gan, Sede Boqer Campus, Israel
Call for Papers
This conference seeks to address Sephardi/Mizrahi migration and the formation of Sephardi/Mizrachi diasporas in the last 200 years from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective. We look forward to receiving proposals that evince diverse perspectives on immigrants’ integration and encounters with Jewish and non-Jewish and Sephardi and non-Sephardi populations in new lands.
We invite presentations covering the historiographic, sociological, demographic, economic, and cultural aspects of these migratory processes, as well as related theoretical and methodological implications that can aid our understanding of Jewish-Muslim and Mizrahi-Ashkenazi relations. Additionally, the conference will include a session on Jewish press and media as a lens through which the transnational dimensions of these migrations can be examined.
Proposals should include a lecture title, an abstract of up to 500 words, and a brief autobiographical note (English preferred, Hebrew if necessary). These should be submitted by March 1, 2019 to Dr. Aviad Moreno, email@example.com.
We strongly encourage joint proposals for full thematic panels.
