VIII CONGRESS of the European Association for Jewish Studies

Moscow, 23-27 July 2006


The executive committee of the European Association for Jewish Studies is
glad to announce that the next congress of EAJS will take place in Moscow on
July, 23-27, 2006. It will be the first EAJS Congress held in Eastern
Europe. We hope to bring together scholars from both Eastern and Western
Europe. The theme of the Congress is 'Past and present perspectives in
Jewish Studies'. The local organizers are the International Center for
Russian & East European Jewish Studies, and "Sefer" Center for University
Teaching of Jewish Civilization.

Members of the European Association for Jewish Studies and all other
scholars in the various fields of Jewish Studies are invited to participate
in the VIIIth EAJS Congress. Scholars are welcome to attend the Congress
whether or not they intend to present a paper.

Proposals for Lectures (20 minutes + 10 minutes for discussion) should
contain a title and a 300-word abstract.

Please send applications to: till December 1, 2005

Please select from the list of Sections the subject area in which you choose
to have your proposal considered. You may submit your proposal to only one
Section. However, please be aware that the Congress Committee and Section
Chairs will work together in placing proposals in other appropriate Sections
if a worthy proposal cannot be placed in the Section to which it was
submitted. Also attach your CV, return mailing address, e-mail address, fax,
and telephone number. All abstracts will be forwarded to the appropriate
Section chairman, who will make the final selection of lectures to be
