The panel investigates shifts in the role of the Holocaust in European public debates in the recent past. Contrasting developments in Poland, Germany, and Great Britain, we will identify common threads as well as differences in perceiving, presenting, memorizing the mass murder of European Jewries.

The Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies at UCL is pleased to announce plans for an International Graduate Student Conference, devoted to explorations of multiple aspects of Jewish spirituality in Eastern Europe, to be held on 5th and 6th of June 2012 in London. The conference organizers invite graduate students and recent PhD holders to submit their proposals. We welcome presentations addressing any aspect of the religious history and religious culture of Eastern European Jewry, with an emphasis on their textual products. We are particularly interested in proposals which open up new perspectives and pose new questions regarding conceptual frameworks and traditional definitions used to describe Eastern Europe in the field of Jewish Studies.

Student Staff Consultative Committee
The Student-Staff Consultative Committee is a platform for discussion between students and members of staff about any relevant departmental issue, from teaching to extra-departmental activities, which affects more than a single person. Students who wish to organise an activity, make a complaint, suggest an improvement of one thing or another, will find a willing ear here. In this representative body each year is represented.
At least one meeting each term will be organised, but at request of the students or staff, additional meetings may be convened. The current minutes will be posted at the boards of HJS; from 2008 on, we will resume posting the minutes on this webpage. After three years, these minutes will be archived.
Committee members for each academic year will be elected at the beginning of the first term.
