Who and What Is Jewish?

Professor Pap is a constitutional scholar and human rights expert working on the legal and political conceptualization of race, ethnicity and ethno-national identity, as well as on models for operationalizing membership in these communities. In his lecture he will use case studies from both Israel and the Diaspora to provide an overview of how these categories and political constructs can encapsulate the multifaceted and multilayered questions of how being Jewish is and is being defined, and whether the definition concerns membership in a racial, ethnic, national, religious, or cultural community.

András L. Pap is SASRO-Marie S. Curie Fellow at the Institute of Sociology at the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava; and Research Chair and Head of Department at the Institute for the Study of Constitutionalism and the Rule of Law at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest; and Professor of Constitutional Law at the Law Enforcement Faculty of the National Public Service University in Budapest, as well as Recurrent Visiting (Adjunct) Professor at Central European University's Nationalism Studies Program in Budapest.
