Who gets to say "we" in Jewish Antwerp?
I have been selected as a Fulbright Scholar for the academic year 2022-2023. My project is entitled: "Community Without Commonality: Samenleven and the Jewish Communities of Antwerp." My research concerns the Flemish emphasis on samenleven ("living together") and the overlapping and diverse Jewish communities living in Antwerp, Belgium.
My research will be conducted under the direction of Drs. Vivian Liska and Stijn Oosterlynck at the University of Antwerp. I will be a fellow at the Institute for Jewish Studies, the Centre for Research on Environmental and Social Change, and the Antwerp Urban Studies Institute.
