Event details

We will be holding a one-day cultural event on Saturday 1st June consisting of a series of short talks led by experts from within the Parkes Institute at Southampton. This thought provoking and inspiring conference will provide you with the opportunity to learn and engage in discussion about Jewish culture from academics of international distinction.

‘Lost in Translation? Jewish Cultures' is the second study day for the general public from the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/Non-Jewish Relations this year. The day will be held on 1st June 2013 and will consist of a series of talks with lots of opportunities for questions, discussion and debate.

Jewish life and identity have often been shaped in processes of dialogue with other groups, both in contact and conflict. This day will consider translation and transfer (of languages but also of values, beliefs, histories and narratives from past to present and from one culture into another as key in the Jewish experience.

Places are limited, so book your place early to avoid disappointment.

This is part of a series of events organised by Lifelong Learning.
