We invite you to listen to our new GEOP podcast series "What’s New? What’s Next? Jewish Studies in the time of pandemic".

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, we have rescheduled our international conference on the future of Jewish studies by a year to October 2021. During the intervening months, we are inviting colleagues to explore the conference themes in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The podcast series will explore the conference themes – methodology, paradigm shifts, new sources, and new approaches to old sources – in relation to the current and earlier epidemics, Jewish responses to them, and how they have been studied from historical and contemporary perspectives. The focus of this series offers a multidisciplinary and transhistorical case study for exploring the conference themes. As a lead-up to the conference, the podcasts will demonstrate the kinds of presentations we would like to encourage.

This series is one of the ways that POLIN Museum is responding to the unique situation that all of us are facing.

Each panel will consist of a two lectures: a general lecture and the source lecture.
