Lecture in English
Accompanying Programm to the exhibition: The Last Europeans. Jewish perspectives on the crisis of an idea
The European Question Encounters the Jewish Question, Michael Miller, Central European University
Michael Miller’s lecture deals with the Paneuropa Union of the interwar period, its attraction to Jews, its confrontation with the Jewish question of the time, and its advocacy of pacifism and transnational reconciliation. In the end, the Pan-European Union was on the losing end – and at the same time became a forerunner of the European Union after the catastrophe of World War II.
Michael Miller directs the Nationalism Studies Program at the Central European University in Vienna/Budapest, where he also teaches in the Jewish Studies Program. His research focuses on the impact of nationality conflicts on the religious, cultural, and political development of Jewish communities in Eastern Europe. Miller is a founding member of the International Consortium for Research on Antisemitism and Racism. His book Rabbis and Revolution: the Jews of Moravia in the Age of Emancipation was published in 2011. He is currently working on a history of Hungarian Jewry.
