PRIVACY hosts Seminar in Cracow in Collaboration with Institute for Jewish Studies at Jagiellonian University

PRIVACY and Institute for Jewish Studies at Jagiellonian University in Cracow are hosting the seminar: Notions of Privacy in Jewish Life (1500-1945).

The idea of “private” and “privacy” crystalises in the early modern period, when the society becomes more individualised. This can be seen in various developments in architecture, legislation and in personal writing. The Jewish communities present a particular interest because of their position dependent on the local authorities.

PRIVACY scholars Michaël Green and Natália da Silva Perez together with Edyta Gawron will discuss ideas and practices of privacy among the Jewish communities in the early modern Netherlands and aspects of privacy in the life of individuals and families in Cracow's ghetto.
