England’s Jew: Finance, Violence and the Crown in the Thirteenth Century (virtual and in-person)

September 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


In 1290, Jews were expelled from England and subsequently largely expunged from English historical memory. Yet for two centuries they occupied important roles in medieval English society. “England’s Jews” revisits this neglected chapter of English history – one whose remembrance is more important than ever today, as antisemitism and other forms of racism are on the rise.

Join the author, historian John Tolan, in conversation with Alan Singer (UWM, Honors College) as they discuss historical memory, antisemitism, and the experiences of Jews in England.

Attend in-person at the UWM library 4th floor conference center or online. Register at Webinar Registration – Zoom

Cosponsored by Boswell Book Company, and by UWM’s Honors College, Department of History, and Religious Studies Program.
