Unlike others who became a part of the Russian Empire as a result of the partitions of Poland, Jews were not viewed as native to the newly colonized territories.
Many accepted their doubly alien status; however, there also emerged Jewish views that rejected the assumption that they were necessarily alien.
Professor Deutsch will discuss the significance of these views against the backdrop of internal Jewish politics and Russian policies.
