Project overview

2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Parkes Library at the University of Southampton, the catalyst for the establishment of the unique Parkes Institute for the study of Jewish/non-Jewish relations.

This award funded the Parkes Institute Jubilee anniversary conference, which took place at the University of Southampton from 7-9 September 2015.

The event examined the subject of Jewish/non-Jewish relations by looking at the history of research over the last 50 years, presenting the latest research in this area, and determining future directions in the field.
