The call for papers is out for the 19th Conference of the Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies, set for August 2-4, in Denver, Colorado.
Papers are invited on any aspect of crypto-Judaism from any discipline (e.g., anthropology, history, sociology, philosophy, literature, music, etc.) and from any geographic location or time period. Also welcomed are additional aspects of the Sephardic experience and other communities whose historical or sociological experience is similar to that of the crypto-Jewish community.
All interested scholars and professionals, including advanced graduate students, are invited to submit proposals for papers, presentations or workshops.
Proposals are also welcome from individuals with personal stories and genealogical or other research relating to crypto-Judaism.
Proposals may be for individual papers or presentations or complete sessions on specific topics. Submitters should indicate if the proposal represents completed research or work in progress. Include a 200-word abstract and a brief bio.
Submit proposals by May 1, or questions, to Seth Kunin, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Durham University (UK). There is some available funding for graduate students to attend and present at the conference
