This conference brings together the latest scholarship on the broad themes of transnationalism, intersectionality, and cross-border exchanges in Jewish history from the early modern period to the present.

On the first day of the conference, Tara Zahra will give the keynote lecture titled "European Jews between Globalization and Deglobalization." The conference will include panels with leading scholars from Europe, Israel, North America and South America. The goal is to form a better picture of the most current research on the subject of Jewish transnationalism. This will cover cultural, religious, economic, and social aspects of the topic.
