We are pleased to announce that the latest issue of East European Jewish Affairs has been published by Taylor & Francis/Routledge. This issue comprises articles, guest edited by Jonathan Dekel-Chen, on East European Jewish migration, from the late nineteenth until the late-twentieth centuries, with a focus on reconnecting that history to the regimes, ideas, cultures and peoples with whom Jews intersected along their way.

2015 ASEEES Convention: panel on state antisemitism and propaganda in the Soviet Union

I would like to organize a panel on state antisemitism and propaganda in the Soviet Union for the 2015 ASEEES Convention.

The panel will analyze the reasons for the rise of state antisemitism in the Soviet Union after World War II, the various forms of state antisemitism in the Soviet Union, Soviet propaganda and antisemitism, and the popular response to state antisemitism from the Jewish and gentile population.

I am going to present my paper on the anti-cosmopolitan campaign, the “Doctor’s Plot” and popular antisemitism in Kiev.
