Several of the articles gathered in this special issue are based on papers presented
at the symposium on ‘Writing Jews in Contemporary Britain’ held at and generously
funded by the Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism on 11 September 2013,
and co-convened by the editors together with the Institute’s director, David Feldman.
Others have been especially commissioned for the issue. Thanks are also due to Jan
Davison, Jonathan Magonet and Jenny Pizer.
