The British Association for Jewish Studies (BAJS) is pleased to invite paper and panel proposals for its 2014 annual meeting, which will convene in Trinity College Dublin from 13 to 15 July. The conference theme is 'Jews and Political Discourse.' We welcome contributions from all periods and regions, whether narrowly focused or broadly contextual, synthetic or analytical. We would encourage contributions from those working in interdisciplinary areas, as well as from scholars who do not usually attend the BAJS conference. A postgraduate student workshop is planned and some bursaries will be available.

We are delighted to announce that the keynote lectures will delivered by Professor Moshe Halbertal, Professor of Jewish Thought and Philosophy at the Hebrew University and Gruss Professor at NYU Law School and Professor Paul Franks, Professor of Philosophy and Judaic Studies at Yale University.

A number of cultural events in Dublin are planned including a special display of Hebrew books from the collections of the Old Library, Trinity College Dublin and Marsh’s Library. There will also be private tours of the Irish Jewish Museum and of the Chester Beatty Library.
