CFP: Junior Scholar Workshop in Russian and East European Jewish Cultures
The Working Group in Russian and East European Jewish Cultures at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invite submissions for a Junior Scholar Workshop in Russian and East European Jewish Cultures, to be held via Zoom on May 24 and May 25, 2021. The workshop is open to advanced graduate students and early career scholars (up to five years after the PhD). Abstracts and papers should highlight the critical methodologies used in the work. Selected papers will be pre-circulated among the participants, to maximize opportunity for discussion. Note that circulation-ready papers will be due April 26. Participants will also have an opportunity to meet with a panel of invited archivists and reference librarians in the field of Jewish and Slavic Studies.
To be considered, please send your 400-word abstract and CV by Jan 15, 2021, to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. We will then inform participants who have been selected and ask you to develop a paper of no more than 8,000 words (excluding notes).
Eligible participants will receive a modest honorarium for participating in the online two-day workshop.
