4-Day Oxford Virtual International Symposium - Enterprise, Engagement, Integration: Jews of Seventeenth-Century Britain and the Empire
We invite you to join our upcoming virtual conference, Enterprise, Engagement, Integration: Jews of Seventeenth-Century Britain and the Empire. The symposium will take place over four days, 5-8 March, scheduled to facilitate maximum international participation.

Beginning immediately after the expulsion of Jews in 1290 and stretching into the 18th century, the symposium will be relevant to those who study medieval Europe; early modern social history; religion and migration; and the Atlantic World.

With 12 sessions and 50 contributors from 11 countries, there is much that you may find of interest, including sessions devoted to book history, Jews in British literature, economic thought, material culture, racialization, Caribbean influences, family histories, and the Resettlement.

This conference is the first to consider the breadth and many-sided activities of Jews across wide swathes of the British empire during periods of significant historical and social transformation within and outside of Britain; it should offer multiple new insights into the changing status of Jews, inadequately explored spheres of their influence, and historical developments that variously inflected and determined ways they were and still are perceived in British history and historiography.
