Continuities and Ruptures: Artistic Responses to Jewish Migration, Internment and Exile in the Long Twentieth Century
6-8 juillet, Leeds
Displacement has been an integral part of the twentieth-century Jewish experience. Whether forced due to Nazi persecution, compelled by other oppressive factors, or entered into voluntarily in the hope of a new start, migration, internment and exile have affected musical, theatrical and literary output by Jewish artists in myriad ways. For example, members of the conference committee are currently researching topics including the music of Jewish immigrants to South Africa; the works of composers, playwrights and authors before, during and after incarceration in the Terezin/Theresienstadt ghetto; Holocaust songbooks; and Jewish artistic expression in the Soviet Union. They are also investigating the question: what does it mean to perform these works today, or even create new artistic works stimulated by them? Presentations that address these and many other topics, in a variety of formats (see conference website for details), are invited.
The conference is sponsored by the Worldwide Universities Network International Research Collaboration project ”Music, Memory and Migration in the Post-Holocaust Jewish Experience: Renewal and Transformation”. Bursaries for research students and early-career researchers may be available to assist with travel and accommodation.
