mRNA translation is a key regulatory step in the control of gene-expression and protein synthesis. The field itself covers many aspects, including, but not limited to the mechanism and regulation of translation initiation/elongation/termination both globally and in an mRNA specific manner, the regulation of mRNA stability and turnover, microRNA-mediated regulation, sub-cellular localisation mRNAs within the cytoplasm and mRNA sequestration. This meeting encompasses each of these aspects within a broad range of biological contexts.

Boundaries is a crucial topic in Jewish Studies and has been a key issue since Biblical times, considering the reasons for dietary laws, prohibition of intermarriage, patrilineal/matrilineal descent etc. But the question of boundaries is also contested and raises issues of contrasting imagined communities, along with communal power to police identity and the limits of belonging. In the modern period and especially since the Holocaust, the issue of boundaries has taken on new dimensions. These include the ‘revival’ of cultural expressions of ‘virtual Jewishness’ in sites of memory such as Poland and Germany; demographic changes brought by population mobility and ‘marrying out’ and the responses of religious authorities to these; complex social and political relationships between Israel and the Diaspora; multiple forms of religious and secular identities. These questions are open to interdisciplinary scholarship in fields such as law, anthropology, theology, history, religious studies, sociology, literature and cultural studies. The intention is to encourage contributions on any issues relating to the interconnections between social and personal memory, negotiations of identity and contested boundaries from multiple points of view. This conference aims to create a forum for exploration of these issues both from within Jewish Studies but also from contributors who have not previously been involved in BAJS.
