The Southern Jewish Historical Society is holding its 47th annual conference from October 20-22, 2023, in Houston, Texas. The conference theme is “Space and Place in Southern Jewish History.” We seek to understand how physical spaces—neighborhoods, borders, boundaries, and the built environment—have shaped southern Jewish history, and we also aspire to make space in the field for underrepresented narratives, such as the experiences of Jews of Latinx, Black, Sephardi, and Middle Eastern/North African descent, exploring how they have made a place for themselves in the American South.

We are especially interested in roundtables and workshops, in addition to traditional panels, and we encourage submissions from graduate students. 

Please send a proposal and curriculum vitae, as well as any questions, to conference co-chairs Joshua Furman and Mark Goldberg at by March 15.
