The workshop aims to bring together young researchers who are currently working on topics in Jewish history, Jewish religion and inner life, literature, culture, ideological movements, inter-religious and inter-cultural relations as well as everyday life, and give them the opportunity to present and discuss their projects in a friendly, informal, atmosphere with leading scholars in the field. In doing so, the workshop wishes to build on the achievements of previous workshops and create an interdisciplinary network of younger scholars engaged in the study of areas of European-Jewish history, thought, and culture from the early modern to modern periods.

Currently confirmed participating faculty are Prof. David Feldman (Pears Institute for the study of Antisemitism, Birkbeck/University of London) Dr. Gideon Reuveni (CGJS) and Prof. Christian Wiese (University of Frankfurt a.M.).
