Project Description: 

My doctoral project is an innovative, transnational study of pan-European Jewish relief networks and their role in the shaping of modern Jewish international consciousness in Central and Eastern Europe (two case studies). It brings the methods of digital humanities to bear on historical exploration, incorporating network visualisations and interactive maps, benefiting from the creation of a searchable prosopographical database of donors (TEI). It revisits themes previously studied in isolation dictated by nation-state borders or by the limitations of less advanced quantitative methodologies, in the absence of mapping, with the aim of presenting the Jewish philanthropic networks in Central and Eastern Europe as part of a wider interconnected and dynamic – pan-European relief system.
