Digitaler Vortrag in englischer Sprache von Tobias Brinkmann (Pennsylvania State University): German Jews Beyond Germany: A Transnational History

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).
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. This is surprising. Even a cursory look at the pages of 19th century German Jewish periodicals and newspapers reveals close German Jewish ties to communities in different parts of Europe and especially in the United States.
In his talk Prof. Brinkmann will discuss why modern Jewish history remains beholden to the nation-state paradigm and why the transnational perspective can provide a better understanding of German Jewish history but also modern Jewish history more generally.
