    Statement from the President of the Canadian Society of Medievalists 

    In response to the experience of a colleague from Acadia University and a member of the Black Canadian Studies Association (BCSA) at the recent meetings of Congress held at UBC, the Canadian Society of Medievalists publicly states our support for colleagues in the BCSA. As medievalists, we are aware of the long history of violence towards and oppression of minority groups. We held a roundtable on racism at Congress to discuss racism both within the field of medieval studies and within the academy and society as a whole, along with the steps we can take to begin to address it. We are working towards, and hereby renew our commitment to, greater diversity and equity in medieval studies and within Canadian academia as a whole.

    Déclaration du président de la Société canadienne des Médiévistes

    En réponse à l’expérience d’un collègue de l’Université d’Acadia et d’un membre de l’Association d’études canadiennes noires (BCSA) lors des récentes réunions au Congrès qui s’est tenu à l’UBC, la Société canadienne des Médiévistes voudrait indiquer publiquement notre soutien aux collègues du BCSA. En tant que médiévistes, nous sommes conscients de la longue histoire de violence envers et d’oppression des minorités. Nous avons organisé une table ronde sur le racisme au Congrès pour discuter le racisme dans le domaine des études médiévales, tant au sein de l’académie et les mesures que nous pouvons prendre pour commencer à le résoudre. Nous le travaillons vers et renouvellera notre engagement pour une plus grande diversité et équité en études médiévales et au sein du milieu universitaire canadien dans son ensemble.

    This event, taking place at Library and Archives Canada, 395 Wellington St, Ottawa on Wednesday, April 3, 7:00-9:00 pm with reception to follow, is offered in collaboration with the Concordia Institute for Canadian Jewish Studies.

    In 1519, printer and Christian Hebraist Daniel Bomberg began the monumental task of printing the 44 treatises of the Talmud, becoming the first to do so. It remains the model for all subsequent editions printed to this day. The printing of the Bomberg Talmud is a significant event in the history of printing, on par with the printing of the Gutenberg or Luther Bibles. 

    This event will feature a keynote lecture by Dr. Bruce E. Nielsen, the Judaica Public Services Librarian & Archivist at the Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies, University of Pennsylvania. He is recognized worldwide as a leading expert on the Bomberg Talmud. Complementing the lecture will be a series of short talkbacks that lead into a round-table discussion with a diverse range of scholars.

    Scholars giving talkbacks include Dr. Norma Joseph (Concordia University), a specialist in women and religion who will provide a feminist reflection on the legacy of the Talmud; and Dr. Pierre Anctil (University of Ottawa), who will speak to the textual tradition of the Talmud in Canada, as the 500th anniversary of the first full Talmud printing is also the 100th anniversary of the first Talmud printed in Canada.

    Seating is limited, so please register by March 29, 2019. For more information about this event, email See also the event page on the Library and Archives Canada website, here.
