German Jews Beyond Germany: A Transnational History

Prof. Tobias Brinkmann (Pennsylvania State University)

Following our first-ever simultaneous broadcast last year, join us for the second-ever straight from Pennsylvania. Prof. Brinkmann will speak to an audience on four continents (Africa, America, Asia, and Europe). Listen to, ask about, add your comment, and discover:

German Jewish history is one of the most detailed studied fields in Jewish and German history. Apart from the history of Jewish emigrants from Nazi Germany little is known about German Jews abroad. In his talk Prof. Brinkmann will discuss why modern Jewish history remains beholden to the nations-state paradigm and why the transnational perspective can provide a better understanding of German Jewish history but also modern Jewish history more generally.
