CFP: Studying Jewish Memorial (Yizkor) Books
Participants are sought for a workshop to be proposed
to the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, in
Washington, DC. Each year, the Center accepts
proposals from groups of six-to-ten scholars to
conduct two-week research workshops at the Museum
during the summer. The aim of these workshops is to
promote discussion of methodologies and research
results, to encourage networking among scholars, and
to foster research and publication. I would like to
bring together scholars interested in yizkor books as
a way to further research into the books.
We welcome all proposals on one or more Ploughman text that deal with religious
issues. Langland's Piers Plowman is of course one possible text, but we also
welcome proposals concerning, for example, Pierce the Plowman's Crede, the
Plowman's Tale, early Tudor Ploughman texts, Iolo Goch's Ploughman text or
Johannes von Tepl's Der Ackermann. Please send in your proposal to one of the
emails below by Wednesday the 28th of September.
