The Fifth Warsaw Conference for Young Jewish Studies Researchers

From May 23rd-25th, 2013, the fifth edition of the Warsaw Conference for Young Jewish Studies Researchers will take place. The conference is planned for last year undergraduate students, postgraduate students and PhD students under the age of thirty.


The conference aims at showing a full array of today’s interests of young researchers, as well as the condition of research on broadly understood Jewish Studies. Issues to be discussed will deal with the history of Jews and the Diaspora, and the history of Israel from antiquity to the present.

The presentations will touch on the following topics:

  • Holocaust issues
  • Sociology
  • Culture
  • Literature
  • Art history
  • Language (Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino)
  • Religion, philosophy and others

We would like this conference to become a platform for young researchers across the world which will serve the purpose of exchanging research techniques, thoughts, ideas and interests. The history and culture of Jews has been an integral part of European social life throughout centuries and therefore it deserves the focus of a wide spectrum of academic analyses.

Application forms are available on this website: Centrum Anielewicza.


The completed form should be sent to:

Please keep in mind, we will only consider papers sent in Polish or English language. All details and information which are required in the form should be provided. We expect the proposed speeches to be not longer than 15 minutes; that is approximately 7 pages of standard print. The deadline for submitting papers is 1st February 2013. Participants will be informed about acceptance at the beginning of March via e-mail. The decision of the Organizing Committee is final.

Organizers: The Mordechai Anielewicz Center for the Study and Teaching of the History and Culture of Jews in Poland and the Jewish Section of the Historical Scientific Society at the University of Warsaw.
