Conference: Jewish-Christian Contacts, Past and Present. Sweden and Germany Compared

This conference aims to explore commonalities and differences in patterns of Jewish-Christian contacts in Germany and Sweden. It also focuses on changes over time with a special emphasis on the period from the 1870s to the present. Although the conference as a whole has a comparative theme, we also welcome papers and sessions that deal with either Germany or Sweden specifically.
