Noëmie Duhaut at the symposium "Jews and Citizenship in a Global Context" of the Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies
The Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania is hosting a one-day symposium on "Jews and Citizenship in a Global Context" on March 27, at which IEG Fellow Noëmie Duhaut will also speak as part of the thematic block "State Membership in Imperial Contexts."

Conceived by Jessica Marglin, a current Katz fellow, and Lila Corwin Berman, a former Katz Fellow and director of the Feinstein Center for American Jewish History at Temple University, this day-long symposium aims to put the history of Jews and the history of citizenship in conversation to interrogate established assumptions in each field and open new perspectives and lines of inquiry. The symposium suggests that modern Jewish experience may serve as an entry point into new questions and conversations about topics that include state membership in the context of empire and the nation-state, gradations of citizenship, and civic engagement and nonstate activism across political boundaries. In sessions devoted to these and related topics, with contributions from renowned scholars, the symposium will explore the intersections of Jewish Studies and citizenship studies in different national and transnational contexts.
