Professor Joachim Schlör is a Professor of Modern Jewish/non-Jewish Relations in History at the University of Southampton.

I received my PhD from Tübingen University in 1990 (Nights in the Big City: Berlin, Paris, London 1840-1930) and my Habilitation in 2003 from the University of Potsdam (Das Ich der Stadt. Debatten über Judentum und Urbanität, 1822-1938). In terms of research, I am interested in the cultural history and the ethnography of migration and mobility, of urban life, and of the reflection of history in the individual experience. Many of my publications are based on personal documents (letters, diaries, photo albums) of German Jews who emigrated to Palestine – or elsewhere – after 1933. I am (with Nadia Valman) the co-editor of our journal Jewish Culture and History and (with Johanna Rolshoven) co-editor of the new online journal Mobile Culture Studies. I am currently serving my second term as director of the Parkes Institute.

Research interests

 

My main areas of research are urban studies (the history and perception of cities such as Berlin, Tel-Aviv, or Odessa), topography (the role and meaning of space in history and culture, the history of Jewish forms of settlement), migration (the history of German Jews in Palestine/Israel, but also in Britain and the United States), and archives (the study of connections between historical events and the archival collections in a European context).

My latest book tells the story of a young Jewish women from Heilbronn/Germany who came to England as a domestic servant in 1937, and who experienced her migration as a form of emancipation: “Liesel, it’s time for you to leave”. Die Flucht der Heilbronner Familie Rosenthal vor der nationalsozialistischen Verfolgung.
