Karin Zetterholm and Katharina Keim at the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies at Lund University have organised a one-day workshop on Jewish Studies in the Nordic Countries that will take place on 12 January. The workshop will take place online and has been organised with generous support from and in cooperation with Ruth Illman (Åbo Akademi) and colleagues at the Minhag Finland project.
The purpose of this meeting is to gather academics working in Jewish Studies from a range of institutions across the Nordic region to share experiences and explore collaboration and exchange in research and in teaching. Participating institutions include: Åbo Akademi, Copenhagen University, Gothenburg University, Helsinki University, IHRS, Malmö, Paideia – The European Institute for Jewish Studies in Sweden, Södertörn University, and Uppsala University.
This meeting is intended to be a beginning to a larger conversation, and it is hoped that this work can be continued with further events that will draw in even more colleagues from across the region.
