“Non contrarii, ma diversi” : the question of minority in the eyes of Christians and Jews in Italy (early 15th-mid 18th century)

Dead line for submitting papers : April 15, 2016

21-22 november 2016, Paris, Institut national des langues et civilisations orientales and École des hautes études en sciences sociales.

The conference aims at a collective thinking on how Jews and Christians conceived the Jewish presence in the majority society. Our reflection extends therefore to the relevance of the concept of “minority”, a scholarly category that must be questioned.The legal and political framework, cultural phenomena and social and economic practices will be considered.

We seek proposals for 30-minute papers, in English, that will possibly be published.

Proposals not longer than 500 words should be sent  to Pierre Savy (savy_pierre@yahoo.fr) AND Alessandro Guetta (alessandro.guetta@gmail.com)

We support the costs of airfare and lodging for two nights in Paris

Organizers : Sylvie Anne Goldberg (Études juives-Centre de recherches historiques, École des hautes études en sciences sociales), Alessandro Guetta (Centre de recherches Moyen-Orient Méditerranée, Institut national des langues et civilisations orientales) and Pierre Savy (Analyse comparée des pouvoirs, Université Paris-Est – Marne-la-Vallée).
