Antisemitism in East Central Europe Ideas, Politics and Praxis of Jew-Hatred from a Comparative Perspective, ca. 1880-1939 16 – 18 May 2013 East Central Europe was a particularly significant region in the history of Antisemitism. It was home to a large number of Jews who were not only culturally divided among themselves, but were also separated from their linguistically and denominationally heterogeneous environs. Jews often dominated those specific professions, which in the process of the rise of a market economy assumed central importance in economic life. As a consequence, activists from various social groups—particularly those associated with the Church—began to link economic, civilizational and national discourses to the “Jewish question”, which, in turn, figured prominently in the negotiated construction of modern national (and also Jewish) communities. These discourses found expression in a legal and political framework defined by imperial multi-ethnic states. The diverse nationalities and societies of East Central Europe were thus in particularly close contact. Christian-Jewish relations and contacts were for most people a part of everyday life. Antisemitic discourse and praxis were thus closely intertwined. With the collapse of the empires and the creation of national states after World War I, Antisemites attempted to turn the discrimination of Jews into state policy, in the context of minority politics or nation-building. The conference thus aims to explore the historical dynamics of Jew-hatred, in terms of both continuities and ruptures, and to contribute to theoretical and methodological discussions in the field of Antisemitism research. Bearing in mind the specific regional and historical situation in East Central Europe, the object is to delineate the interrelation between the political and ideological field on the one hand and social practices on the other.
