Workshop: Israel and Europe: Probing Mutual Perceptions and Interpretations in the Diplomatic Archives, 1948-1990
A joint workshop sponsored by the University of Maryland, College Park, and Tel Aviv University, on the topic of Israel and Europe
July 13, 2016 - July 14, 2016 a workshop at the Wiener Library
A closed workshop
The state of Israel has been in the spotlight of European and international attention since its founding in 1948. Yet less attention has been devoted to how the representatives of the government of Israel have interpreted European societies and politics and how European diplomats, both in Israel and in their respective capitals, viewed Israel. The research project that we hope will emerge from this planning workshop is intended to examine these mutual perceptions and interpretations.
