1. de Bloeme, Jordana. "Jewish Youth in a Yiddishist and Polish Milieu: The Vilna Educational Society and Polish-Jewish Hybridic Identity among Yiddish-speaking Youth in Interwar Vilna" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies 44th Annual Convention, New Orleans Marriott, New Orleans, LA, <Not Available>. 2019-06-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p567402_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This paper explores a Polish-Jewish hybridic youth identity that ensued among Yiddish-speaking Jewish youth in the city of Vilna during the interwar years, by looking at the relationship between Jewish leaders affiliated with the Vilna Educational Society (Vilbig) and those who partook in the society's programs. Founded in 1924, leaders of Vilbig championed secular Jewish nationalism through Yiddish language instruction and cultural events, intended to rear a generation of future Yiddish cultural consumers and producers and ensure the continued existence of a secular Jewish nation in Poland. Using archival materials, including minutes of meetings and correspondence between members and Vilbig officials, my paper illuminates the development of a hybrid Polish-Jewish identity and the Yiddishist intelligentsia's intense fear of Polish linguistic and cultural influences, while simultaneously and paradoxically nurturing its development, as Vilbig leaders were forced to come to terms with Vilna Jewry's increasing acculturation into Polish society.

Abstract: This paper examines representations of Polish used bookstores and book stalls in modern Yiddish literature as a lens onto the role of the Polish book in Jewish everyday life. In the Polish capital, more than 80 percent of Polish used bookstores were owned by Jews before the Second World, and most of these booksellers were Hasidic and Yiddish-speaking. Their economic role made them integral to the Polish urban setting and to Polish cultural life. Between the world wars, Jewish owners of secondhand bookstores and book stalls came under attack by the antisemitic press and were targeted by boycotts. By comparing representations of Jewish sellers of used Polish books in Yiddish memoirs and literature with depictions in Polish memoirs and literature, this paper will consider the Polish book trade as a space of Polish-Jewish interaction, one that was plagued by economic competition and increasing antisemitism even as increasing numbers of young Jewish youth were drawn into the Polish linguistic world, blurring the boundaries between Polish and Jewish cultures and identifications. This paper will consider depictions of Polish patrons of these bookstores and their interactions with Jewish owners of secondhand bookstores.

4. Calma, Clarinda. "Edmund Campion in Early Modern Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth: An Analysis of the Paratexts of the Polish and German Translations of the Rationes Decem" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Humboldt University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany, <Not Available>. 2019-06-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p750008_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: In 1583, a German translation of Edmund Campion’s Rationes Decem (1581) was published in the midst of the sharp polemical controversies with the Protestants of Erfurt and Ingolstadt. A year later in 1584, two Polish translations of Edmund Campion’s Rationes Decem, one by Polish Jesuit Piotr Skarga and another by Gaspar Wilkowski were likewise published in reply to Lutherans, Calvinists and Anti-trinitarians of the Polish-Lithuanian Realm. How do these editions illustrate the local reception of Edmund Campion’s most controversial work? This paper mainly aims to provide a provenance history and paratextual analysis of the copies of the Zehen Wolgegründte (Ingolstadt, 1583; Mainz, 1584, 1589), Dziesięć Dowodów (Vilnius, 1584) and the Dziesięć Mocnych Wywodów (Vilnius, 1584) as afforded by ownership markings, dedicatory letters and prefaces of these books so as to demonstrate the wide reception of Edmund Campion’s polemical text within the Germanic and Polish speaking communities of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

Abstract: When Poland joined the European Union in May 2004, the U.K., Ireland, and Sweden opened their job markets to Poles, and the United Kingdom became a major destination for Poles seeking work. The discourses about immigrants serve as a barometer of fears regarding inclusion, permeability of borders, and national identity. The expansion of EU institutions, policies, and borders both create structural possibilities for new forms of identification and inspire economic and political fears, and thus raise questions about how the media negotiate the meanings of the EU, the nation, and Europe in their representation of the migration of EU citizens to EU member states. We investigate how the newspaper discourses negotiate the relationship between the meanings and relationships of the U.K. nation-state and the European Union through the subject of immigrant Poles in two major U.K. newspapers, Daily Mail and the Observer.
