United Kingdom
Subject Fields: 
British History / Studies, Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies, Immigration & Migration History / Studies, Jewish History / Studies, Race / Ethnic Studies

In 2021, when there are more than 79.5 million displaced people across the world and the British Home Secretary proposes re-housing refugees on distant islands, an understanding of refugees as innocent people rather than an invasion is sorely needed. Through an exploration of British responses to the 1930s and 1940s Refugee Crisis, this course will reveal a neglected history of support for refugees from remarkable people and institutions of all faiths and none.

The digitisation boom of the last two decades, and the rapid advancement of digital tools to analyse data in myriad ways, have opened up new avenues for humanities research. The field of Jewish Studies is no exception. How can these digital developments be harnessed to address specific questions and problems in our field?
