Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The Sefer Center for University Teaching of Jewish Civilization and the Institute of Slavic Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) are happy to announce Call for Publications for a peer-reviewed journal of Jewish Studies: Sefer: Studies in Jewish History and Culture. We plan to publish it 2 times a year.
SEFER Center awards grants to support research projects in multiple disciplines on Russian Jewry. The subject of the research may comprise different aspects of Jewish history and culture within the territory of former Russian Empire during various historical periods from the ancient times till post-soviet contemporary period. The grant covers the entire variety of humanitarian and social areas (history, literature, linguistics, art history, education, philosophy, religion studies, sociology, political science etc.), as well as interdisciplinary studies.
We are seeking presenters for a panel tentatively titled "Nation Building in Twentieth Century India." Historians have long examined how political figures played a key role in the emergence of free India. In this panel however, we seek to shed light on the role of social forces that lay beyond the realm of political parties. We currently have one panelist presenting material on Bihari intellectuals and their role in the building of modern Patna. A second panelist examines the contribution of Indian railwaymen to the same process in the 1939-1949 period.
