We are presenting these presentations to you free of charge, but donations of any size are very much appreciated and can be made by clicking here.

  • We also welcome proposals for presentations on all aspects of the Sephardic experience and that of other communities exhibiting crypto-Jewish phenomena.

The 2023 conference theme is “A Crypto-Judaic Exploration of the Borderlands.” Proposals breaking new ground in research on the Texas Borderlands and in general the far northern frontier of New Spain, including Texas, Chihuahua, New Mexico, and Southern Colorado are particularly welcome.
