6th Annual Conference on Israel Studies

University of Wrocław, Poland

Last September, the EAIS proudly held its sixth annual conference on Israel Studies in the beautiful city of Wroclaw, Poland. The conference was kindly hosted by the University of Wroclaw, the largest university in the region, and was widely regarded as our most successful event to date. 

The EAIS would like to thank all our guests and panellists for joining us for the conference. With over 180 delegates across the three day event and internationally renowned keynote speakers, we can now confidently claim to be Europe's leading conference on Israel Studies.

The city of Wrocław provided an historically challenging, yet rich and beautiful venue for our first conference in Central and Eastern Europe. The field of Israel Studies is growing across Central and Eastern Europe, and this conference was vital for the EAIS to connect with scholars from the region.

Following on from our success in Poland, we have already begun preparing for our 2018 conference.

The panels will take place in the Brunei Gallery, located right in the heart of Bloomsbury
