On October 8–10, 2018 the German Historical Institute Washington DC (GHI) will host the concluding conference of our research project. Organized by Simone Lässig, Zohar Shavit and Kerstin von der Krone the conference will provide an opportunity to discuss our findings with a group of international scholars from a variety of disciplines. We aim to situate our research within the broader historiographical context and the research on social and cultural transformations and ask more generally what role religion, education and knowledge played in responding to change.
Seating is limited, if you plan to attend the conference please register with Ms. Susanne Fabricius at fabricius(at)ghi-dc.org by September 15, 2018.
Together with their colleagues of Tel Aviv University’s Youth Culture Studies Program Zohar Shavit and Tal Kogman are organizing an annual workshop on May 8th, 2018 that will discuss how Children encounter the nature and the animal world, placing this workshop at the intersection of a cultural history of childhood and new approaches from animal studies.
