The Kindertransport 80 Years On: Critical Approaches to Kindertransport Research and Historiography

Date: 23-24 January 2019
Venue: UCL Institute of Advanced Studies, London, UK

The eightieth anniversary of the scheme that permitted over 10,000 unaccompanied, mostly Jewish, children to enter the UK in 1938-39 seems a fitting time to approach a new, critical assessment of the Kindertransport and its origins, rationales, enactment and outcomes. This interdisciplinary conference welcomes papers that examine the Kindertransport with critical scholarly rigor, exploring less well-known aspects of the scheme as well as fresh perspectives on the more familiar Kindertransport themes. Presentations are anticipated to be 20-25 minutes grouped into panels, with questions to follow each segment. Participants will be invited to submit their papers after the symposium for a collected edition on the Critical Approaches to Kindertransport Research, Historiography and Representation.
This conference is being organised by Professor Michael Berkowitz, Dr. Jennifer Craig-Norton, Anita Grosz, Dr. Andrea Hammel and Lesley Urbach. We are inviting contributions from a variety of academic disciplines. Topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Critical Approaches to Kindertransport Research, Historiography and Representation
  • Individuals and refugee organisations
  • Kindertransport carers — their motivations & roles
  • The parents — their perspectives, feelings and fates
  • Issues of gender, age and identity
