Earlier this year Zohar Shavit and Tal Kogman presented insights into their research on the Haskalah movement, mascilic concepts of parenthood, childhood and adolescence and their significance for the transformation of Jewish life and Jewish education in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. Both articles appeared in the Journal of Jewish Education.
The Fall issue of the Bulletin of the German Historical Institute (Washington DC) features further insight in our research. Simone Lässig sheds light on the history of knowledge, its intellectual and disciplinary origins and the value of knowledge as a category of historical research. These considerations are likewise significant for our research project. Kerstin von der Krone provides a concrete example through her contribution on the transformation of Jewish religious knowledge in the nineteenth century.
