The topic this year is "Cross-Cultural Connections in the Early Modern Jewish World." Though the phenomenon of Jewish cultural contacts with surrounding cultures has been noted and examined in many of the contexts in which it occurred, there has as yet been little attempt to examine the mechanisms through which these cultural exchanges took place. It is becoming increasingly clear that t his kind of contact is a cultural phenomenon which needs to beunderstood in its own terms. The goal of this workshop will therefore be to examine a range of early modern Jewish cross-cultural contacts in order to discover not only how each one worked, but also to see commonalities and differences between them. In order to achieve this, each presenter at the 2012 Early Modern Workshop in Jewish history has been asked to examine a single such cross-cultural connection between Jew and non-Jew in the early modern world. This might be a direct person-to-person contact, an epistolary exchange, an intellectual contact - or any other form about which there is evidence. The term 'culture' is here understood in its broadest possible sense, to include not only religious and intellectual culture (though these are, of course, very important aspects), but economic culture and the culture of daily life, too. The idea of the workshop is not to show how any single exchange altered the course of Jewish (or non-Jewish) cultural development, but rather what it can teach us about the ways in which Jews and non-Jews interacted, learned about each other's culture, and were changed as a result. Our keynote speaker will be Thomas Cohen of York University. The program will include presentations by (in alphabetical order): Jay Berkowitz, Finding Common Ground: The Metz Beit Din and the French Judicial System Andrew Berns, Medicine as a Cultural Connection Between Jews and Christians in Early Modern Italy Ya'akov Deutsch, A Jewish-Christian Commentary on Luke David Graizbord, Cultural Transmission and Assimilation in a Quotidian Key: The Conversion of Two Jews in Spain, 1790-1792 Daniel Jutte, Jailhouse Encounter: A Sixteenth-Century Jewish-Christian Tale and its Historiographical Ramifications Daniel Schroeter, A Jewish Moroccan Family and a Moroccan Ruler Magda Teter, The Early Modern Inn as a Space for Religious and Cultural Exchange Joanna Weinberg, Real or Virtual Contact? Johannes Buxtorf's Reading of Jewish Literature David Ruderman, Tara Nummedal, and Thomas Cohen will join us at the round table. We would like to invite qualified graduate students of the early modern period to apply to attend the workshop. Students admitted will receive a fellowship covering travel, accommodation, and (kosher) meals. Candidates should send an abstract (not longer than 2 pages) of the dissertation project, a short statement explaining how their work bears on issues relevant to the workshop, and a C.V.
