New light on European research

New light on European research

On Monday 1 March we held a webinar to discuss the findings of JPR’s recent report Social research on European Jewish populations: The state of the field

This report represents the first ever attempt to ‘map’ research coverage on European Jewish populations, based on an analysis of JPR’s own European Jewish Research Archive (EJRA), a free-to-use online repository of post-1990 research publications. As well as highlighting the strengths and limitations of existing research coverage on particular topics and countries, the report raises questions which are important for researchers and policy-makers, about how the field of research on European Jewish populations can be developed in the future.

Following several years of work, the Archive now holds over 3,200 items in 29 languages, covering 54 different countries. The study analyses its holdings in detail and paints an overarching portrait of research on contemporary European Jewish life.

At the webinar, which was chaired by JPR Executive Director, Dr Jonathan Boyd, the report’s author and Archive Director Dr Keith Kahn-Harris shared key insights from the study and considered its implications for the future of the study of Jewish life in Europe.
