Disturbing Pasts: Reverberations of the Second World War in Europe after 1945

Start: Jul 3, 2014 1:00:00 PM
End: Jul 5, 2014 3:30:00 PM

This conference sets out to explore the complex and diverse reverberations of the Second World War after 1945. The notion of  ‘disturbing pasts’ refers to the experience of war and violence. But the aim is to understand how and why these experiences continue to disturb a later present, and how some people later disturb an apparently dormant past. The focus is on conflicting, unexpected and often dissonant interpretations and representations of these events among both those who were the witnesses, victims and perpetrators of these events and among different communities in the generations that followed. On a theoretical level, therefore, one objective of this conference is to raise challenges to the widely used and yet under-theorized concept of ‘collective memory’.

medicine
The association between Jewish doctors and their calling has roots which go back to the Babylonian Talmud and proceed throughout the Middle Ages into modernity, with major contributions to medicine being made by Jewish practitioners. A fundamental aspect of this question is how to define 'Jewish medicine' throughout its long history. Developing a clear profile will have considerable influence on the way we view the connection between Jews and medicine. The conference will present different aspects of research on Jewish medicine - its origins, its historical context, how medicine could be influenced by Jewish law and custom (halachah) and how the role of the Jewish doctor has evolved over the centuries.
