Jüdische Identitäten in Mitteleuropa
The volume assembles the papers delivered at an interdisciplinary symposium held at the University of Klagenfurt in December 2000. The studies focus on a variety of different topics, all of which shed light on different versions of Jewish identity (or identities) in the 19th and 20th centuries. They also mirror the polyphonic nature of the discourses on Jewish life and thought. Another aspect highlighted by the collection is the interaction between Jewish intellectuals as cultural mediators and the evolution and reception of modernism in central Europe. The main focus is on the early 20th century, with some attention also given to the post-Shoah epoch. Geographically, the studies concentrate on major centres and regions of central Europe, notably Vienna, Bohemia/Moravia, Hungary, Bukovina, Galicia, the southern Slavonic countries, and Trieste.
