CfP, EAJS 2018: The fate of Hebrew manuscripts, collections/collectors and scholars in the 20th century 

For EAJS Cracow 2018, I am looking for historical and historiographical papers about the fate of Hebrew manuscripts, manuscript collections, and manuscript collectors and scholars in the 20th century. The rupture of 1933-45 looms large, of course, and continues to cast its shadows, but participants are free to explore also other turning points, including WWI, the formation of collections beyond Europe, recent dispersions of 19th century institutional collections and the formation of new institutional and private collections.

Please send me proposals  by Fri 13 October 2017 to
