Contesting Jewish Loyalties: The First World War and Beyond

This conference, which the Pears Institute is supporting, will explore the multifaceted aspects of the question of Jewish loyalties. Starting with the Dreyfus affair, it will consider the degree to which individual Jews and Jewish communities in Europe, the US and elsewhere engaged with the question of loyalty before, during and after the First World War, in a broad interdisciplinary and transnational context.

Organised by:
