 Insights into Jewish Heritage

The Centro de Estudios del Bajo Martín is pleased to announce  the First International Colloquium on Jewish Heritage, which will take place in Híjar and Albalate del Arzobispo (Teruel, Spain) from October 20 to 21, 2016, during the 3rd Edition of the Days of Cultural Heritage in the Bajo Martín (19-23 October)

This International Colloquium aims at building framework for reflection on the Jewish cultural heritage in the area and its study, preservation and recovery. The approach to Jewish heritage will be broad: historical, documentary and archival, literary, architectural, etc., featuring the contributions and products of the Aragon region in general and the Bajo Martín area in particular.

At present, Spanish Jewish cultural heritage is eliciting significant interest and is an object of reflection and even controversy. As a consequence, this seems a pertinent moment to question scholars, researchers, professionals and citizens about this issue and to invite them to participate in this forum for academic discussion.

All in all, the Colloquium aims to be a place to share results and discuss the perspectives of current research in Jewish studies as well of heritage recovery initiatives which are currently either in progress or are included in prospective projects for heritage restoration and tourist promotion.

The Colloquium will provide attendees with a theoretical framework drawn up by renowned scholars. Their plenary lectures will present the state of the art in the field of their current research field so that it serves as a starting point for debate. Each session will conclude with a time for participants to share their comments and engage in questions on the given topic.
