New Perspectives in the History of German Judaism, Fascism, and Sexuality
Berlin, 6 to 9 June 2019
On the occasion of the 100th birthday of Professor George L. Mosse three generations of historians will gather to commemorate and analyze his ongoing influence in European, Jewish, and Gender history, as well as the continued resonance of the Mosse family legacy in Berlin.
Scholars from Germany, Israel, and the United States will meet in Mosse’s childhood city of Berlin to discuss the questions that continue to emerge from his research, including: How does gender as a category of analysis continue to modify our understanding of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Europe? What are the limits of liberalism? What role do racial stereotypes play in political culture before and after 1945? And how have historians expanded Mosse’s analysis of Nazi ideology to better understand the Holocaust and the history of twentieth-century Europe?
This conference takes place in cooperation between the George L. Mosse Program in History and the Deutsches Historisches Museum and is also co-sponsored by the Leo Baeck Institute London.
