Continuities and Ruptures: Artistic Responses to Jewish Migration, Internment and Exile in the Long Twentieth Century
6-8 July 2014 – School of Music, University of Leeds

Displacement has been an integral part of the twentieth-century Jewish experience. Whether forced due to Nazi persecution, compelled by other oppressive factors, or entered into voluntarily in the hope of a new start, migration, internment and exile have affected musical, theatrical and literary output by Jewish artists in myriad ways.
This conference seeks to interrogate these phenomena through academic papers, public lectures, performances, workshops and other types of session.
