The Dubnow Institute disseminates the focal points and findings of its research in various analogue and digital event formats, actively seeking a dialogue with the general public alongside an academic exchange. The conferences, workshops, colloquia, the annual Simon Dubnow Lecture, general lecture series, book presentations, and film screenings are mostly organized in cooperation with regional, national, and international partners. The institute also participates in cultural events with a broad public appeal such as the reading festival of the Leipzig Book Fair, the Long Night of Scholarship, and the Jewish Week. At these events, the institute not only opens the doors to its building in the central Graphic Quarter, but invites the public to regular events at various cultural locations in the city, making scholarship accessible to all interested parties.
