At this Research Forum, Professor Israel Bartal (Hebrew University/Rutgers University) will discuss his new findings on the British Mission’s activity in the Russian Empire, 1816-1820. His talk on “’Who Are You Benjamin Nehemiah Solomon?’: British Missionaries in the 'Pale of Settlement', 1816-1820” promises to offer a new perspective on Russian-Jewish historiography. Please note that this meeting of our ongoing faculty/graduate student forum will be held in the usual place (EWCJS Room 202), but not at the usual time. Instead we will meet Monday, March 17th, from 5 to 6:30PM. A light dinner will follow the forum. Please RSVP for dinner to judaics@bu.edu. Students, faculty, and community members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please be sure to invite friends, colleagues, and students.
