Redefining National Identity: Anti-Semitism, Jewish Renaissance, and Philo-Semitism in Contemporary Poland

This project looks at three phenomena in Poland--anti-Semitism, the renaissance of Jewish Communities and non-Jewish Poles' interest and fascination in Jewish culture and history. Building on the literature on national identity, religion and cultural sociology, the project seeks to identify the relationship between these phenomena and understand the processes through which the symbolic borders of the nation are constructed
