For this important Conference in Krakow on Jewish Heritage we have been overwhelmed by expressions of interest from all parts of the world and have already received paper/presentation proposals from 29 countries.

In response to this global interest and to the many of you who still want to participate and share your research and experience with our international and inter-disciplinary audience in the famous City of Krakow, we have agreed to extend the ‘Call for Papers’ for another 4 weeks.

Help to shape our discussions around the past, present and future of urban Jewish Heritage, and join us for what will be an important event in shaping the future for Jewish Heritage across towns and cities around the world.

Submit a 300 word abstract for papers/presentations as soon as possible and by 11th May at the very latest.

We are particularly keen to hear from researchers, planners and policy-makers who are working with the following:

  • Case studies relating to the preservation, conservation, development and interpretation of Jewish heritage in towns and cities
  • Experiences of the tourism industry in running Jewish heritage tours, the touristic presentation of Jewish Heritage in towns and cities, and the touristic experience
  • The role of the museum in promoting, representing and presenting Jewish heritage
  • The role of town, city, and municipality planning and heritage departments in developing management models for urban Jewish heritage
  • Intangible heritage relating to the presence and absence of Jewish heritage in urban areas.
