"Jews in Polish Society: Insiders, Outsiders' - all-day international seminar exploring the status and social identity of Jews in Poland past and present. Organized in partership with the Institute of Polish Jewish Studies and the Embassy of the Republic of Poland. A part of Polska! Year. 

Cultural boundaries––political, social, and religious––have been a key feature of life in Poland since medieval times. By focusing on the ways in which these boundaries were respected, crossed, or otherwise negotiated, this conference throws new light on the contacts between Jews and Christians in Poland over the centuries. The line-up of speakers has been selected so as to focus on the idea of Jews as both insiders and insiders in Poland from a variety of perspectives, including the situation in present- day Poland

The conference marks the launch of P O L I N V O L U M E 2 2
Social and Cultural Boundaries in Pre-Modern Poland Edited by Adam Teller, Magda Teter and Antony Polonski
