Revolutions, Religion, and the Politics of Negotiating Space (UW-Madison)

8:00AM - 8:30PM  

DeLuca Forum, Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery 330 N. Orchard St.
Madison, WI 53715

The Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies is pleased to host a symposium in collaboration with Tel Aviv University’s Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies. This two-day symposium is part of an innovative, multi-year collaboration that was made possible through the vision and generosity of Debra and Richard Sincere.

From the Middle Ages to the present and from Middle Europe to the Middle East, Jews have been negotiating spaces in which to live and to thrive, sometimes with and sometimes without the help of their non-Jewish neighbors. This symposium brings together both expert faculty and graduate students around the theme of negotiating space, shared and not-so-shared, public and private, historically and in the present.

The symposium is free and open to the public.
