CALL for PAPERS - EAJS Conference 2018, Krakow: Pre-organized Panel on Jewish medicine and sciencesFollow the link for more details. The deadline for proposals is 16 December 2017.
Jewish Roots and routes of knowledge - approaches to medicine, sciences and knowledge in pre-modern Jewish cultures
The Berlin based research project on “Talmudic medicine” (Prof. Mark Geller, Dr. Lennart Lehmhaus) seeks to organize for the EAJS Congress 2018 in Krakow, Poland a pre-organized panel. The sessions will explore Jewish approaches to medicine and adjacent scientific fields (astrology/astronomy; physiognomy; zoology/biology etc.) in their respective historical and cultural contexts. The panel, thus, addresses knowledge of medicine, illness and the body, and its complex entanglement with other scientific and religious discourses (various scientific fields as well as cosmology and medical approaches in Jewish mysticism and Kabbalah, philosophy) throughout pre-modern Jewish history.
