Description

43nd Annual Southern Jewish Historical Society Conference

October 26-28, 2018

Mobile, Alabama


The Southern Jewish Historical Society will host its 43rd annual conference from October 26–28, 2018, in Mobile, Alabama. The theme will be, “Southern Jews, American Citizens.” The conference will focus on how Jews living in the American South negotiated their intersecting regional, national, and ethnic identities AND how they responded to the demands and expectations imposed by regional, national, and ethnic institutions, movements, values, and goals.

While the conference’s theme is inspired by the Mobile area’s long and deep connections with the military, as well as by commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, we invite presentations based on primary research that will explore the intersections of region, nation, and ethnicity in a variety of settings, especially as understood through the lenses of citizenship, public identity, or social consciousness. Possible topics, broadly conceived, include: southern Jewish participation in and interactions with the military or other regional or national institutions; expressions of citizenship and public service reflecting how individuals and communities negotiated being Jewish, southern, and American; the impact of circumstances such as migration, immigration, naturalization, or citizenship-by-birth on the intertwined identities of southern American Jews; southern Jewish philanthropy; and southern Jews as patriots or subversives. In addition to these possible topics, we welcome all proposals dealing with any aspect of southern Jewish history.

This event is being generously sponsored by the Univerisity of South Alabama, Spring Hill College, the Mobile Area Jewish Federation, Sha'arei Shomayim (Springhill Avenue Temple) Congregation, Ahavas Chesed Synagogue, the Mobile Christian-Jewish Dialogue, and the Gulf Coast Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education.
