Dieses von den Jiddistik-Lehrstühlen der Universitäten Trier und Düsseldorf jährlich im Wechsel veranstaltete jiddistische Forum soll Forscherinnen und Forschern die Möglichkeit geben, ihre Projekte vorzustellen, Ideen auszutauschen und Fragen zur Diskussion zu stellen.

Call for Papers

Wir laden Sie herzlich ein, Vortragsangebote in Form einer kurzen Zusammenfassung des Referats an die Symposiumsleitung einzusenden. Die Vorträge können auf Jiddisch oder Deutsch gehalten werden, die Redezeit beträgt 20 Minuten. Zusammenfassungen können bis zum 1. April 2008 eingesendet werden.

Wie in den Vorjahren haben wir auf ein einengendes Rahmenthema verzichtet, um keines der Forschungsfelder der Jiddistik auszugrenzen. Interdisziplinäre Forschung mit einem jiddistischen Bezug wird ebenfalls gern berücksichtigt.

Das Symposium ist offen für alle an der Jiddistik Interessierten. Wir bitten um einen Unkostenbeitrag von 10 €, der auf dem Symposium zu entrichten ist. Bitte melden Sie sich frühzeitig an.
