Judarna och den vegetariska rörelsen i det sena ryska imperiet

Dr. Julia Malitska

Datum: 14 september 2022
Tid: 16.15-18.00
Plats: Eng 16-0054

Dr. Julia Malitska, Södertörns högskola, föreläser om ”Judarna och den vegetariska rörelsen i det sena ryska imperiet”

Julia Malitska är historiker verksam vid Centrum för baltiska och östeuropeiska studier (CBEES) och Institutionen för historia och samtidsstudier på Södertörns högskola. Hon disputerade 2017 på en avhandling om rysk imperiell politik i Svartahavsstäppen på 1800-talet (Negotiating Imperial Rule: Colonists and Marriage in the Nineteenth-Century Black Sea Steppe). Åren 2017 till 2019 undervisade hon i historia på Södertörn. Sedan 2019 är hon postdoktor på CBEES där hon forskar om kostreform och den vegetariska rörelsen i det sena ryska imperiet. Hennes nuvarande forskningsintresse har två inriktningar: imperiell, postimperiell och ny imperiell historia i Öst- och Centraleuropa, samt sammanflätad historia om vetenskap, mat, politik och miljö. 

Under seminariet i Uppsala kommer Malitska att tala om oväntade och outforskade sidor av judars historier som hon upptäckt under sitt postdokprojekt.  

Iosif Perper, the main protagonist of the article, was a co-founder of The Vegetarian Review, a Russian-language monthly periodical and a mouthpiece for vegetarianism, published between 1910–1915 in Kiev. Drawing on a sociological concept of movement intellectuals and Michel Foucault’s theory of pastoral power, as well as acknowledging the decisive role of print, postal service and railroads in disseminating of the vegetarian vogue in Europe, this article illuminates and discusses Iosif Perper’s intellectual and physical efforts to promote the vegetarian movement as represented on the pages of The Vegetarian Review. The analysis points out several incarnations of Perper as a movement intellectual. It also sheds light on the factors likely to have influenced the historiographic and popular image of vegetarianism in the Russian Empire and parts of Eastern Europe, characterized by strong, almost exclusive, associations with Tolstoyism, as well as predetermined the direction of historical enquiries into the topic.

Economic freedom and antisemitism

Date: 15 November
Time: 15.15 - 17.00
Place: Eng 1 0062 

Abstract
In this study, we build on earlier work relating economic institutions to tolerance towards various minorities. We examine how variation in antisemitism across countries can be explained by economic freedom. We propose two mechanisms. First, the more economic freedom, the greater the scope of market activities. If people perceive Jews as particularly skilful at doing business at the expense of others, a greater reliance on markets can increase antisemitism. Second, a key type of institution undergirding the market is an effective and fair legal system, or the rule of law. The stronger the rule of law, the smaller the risk for exploitative behaviour, and the less hostile people will be towards groups seen as exploiters. If Jews are seen as such, more economic freedom reduces antisemitism. We use the ADL Global 100 survey of antisemitic attitudes and relate them, for up to 106 countries, to the Economic Freedom of the World index and its five areas. Our empirical findings confirm the two predictions: The more economic openness, the more antisemitism; and the stronger the rule of law, the less antisemitism. These findings indicate a complex relationship between markets and attitudes towards Jews.

Nazism: Utopia of Life, Dystopia of Death

Date: 28 January

Time: 10.15

Public lecture on occasion of the Holocaust Memorial Day with JOHANN CHAPOUTOT, Sorbonne Université

A hundred years ago, defeat struck the Germans as the worst catastrophe of their modern history—worse than the Thirty Years War and the defeat at the hands of Napoleon in 1806. Not surprisingly, many Germans interpreted the catastrophe in biological terms: not only had Germany lost 2.5 million people (civilians included), but was deprived of its very means of survival by the Treaty of Versailles. Professor Chapoutot will show how the Nazis fabricated their “vision of the world” from a great number of sources, which provided both an explanation and a solution to the perceived disaster.

Johann Chapoutot is Professor of Modern History at the Sorbonne (Sorbonne Université). A specialist of German history, he has published, among others, The Law Of Blood. Thinking and Acting like a Nazi (Harvard UP, 2018), Greeks, Romans, Germans. How the Nazis usurped Europe’s Classical Past (The University of California Press, 2016) and Free to Obey. Nazism and Management (Europa Press, NYC, 2022). His books are translated into 14 languages and distinguished by numerous French and international awards.

The lecture is open to the public. Since it is an online event, we kindly ask you to pre-register by mail to event@hist.uu.se.

If I am not for myself, who will be for me? The Jewish People and Indigenous Resilience

Datum: 24 maj 2022
Tid: 13.15 - 15.00
Plats: Engelska Parken 22-1017
Zoomlänk för registrering


Like many Indigenous groups around the world, the Jewish people have suffered throughout history from various prohibitions and restrictions, forced assimilation and migration. In different places, they have been treated as inferior to others. Their history is permeated with pogroms and killings. However, when we look at the Jewish people during the past decades, we witness an outstanding case study of resilience and recovery via a remarkable process of collective healing and growth. The Jewish people became a unique instance of a group of people who returned to their ancient homeland to revive their communal life.

The study examines the Jewish people’s case within the framework of Indigenous resilience studies. First, it provides an overview of the development of the Indigenous discourse in the international arena. Next, it introduces resilience methods developed by Indigenous People around the world. Following, it briefly reviews the long history of the Jewish people while highlighting some of the resilience strategies that were used to ensure the historical and cultural continuity of the Jewish People. This part also presents prominent figures whose writings can help in the understanding of the Jewish way of thinking. Finally, it offers conclusions and directions for future research.
