Institutum Judaicum Aboense session in TUTP 2024 research conference

The Research Conference in Theology and Religion invites and gathers researchers of the field to the unique joint national conference on 22nd to 24th of May, 2024, in Turku!

Call for papers is published.

Institutum Judaicum Aboense is the host of the session

Jewish Studies in Finland Today

This session focuses on the present day research in Jewish studies – other than the research on antisemitism – in Finland (N.B. the exclusion of the research on antisemitism is only pragmatic; there will be a special conference session dedicated to this topic). Within the frame of this session, the definition Jewish studies is understood in the broadest interdisciplinary sense and should not be restricted merely to studies taking place in the departments of Theology or Study of Religion. It is desirable that in this forum the breadth of the academic study of Judaism becomes visible, and topics ranging from antiquity to present day as well as from textual studies to aspects of lived religion, and anything in between, are welcome.

Session leaders:

Pekka Lindqvist, Åbo Akademi University/Institutum Judaicum Aboense, pekka.lindqvist@abo.fi

Riikka Tuori, University of Helsinki
