This conference celebrates Martin Jay’s career as a professor of European intellectual history for forty-five years at UC Berkeley. All thirty-one speakers had him as their primary advisor for their doctoral study. Their work today demonstrates the breadth of Professor Jay’s impact beyond his own publications, within the academy and without. His former students work in universities in the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Others have pursued careers in law, journalism, and public policy. Taken as a whole, the work of Professor Jay’s students is a testament to the defining presence of his example for the field of European intellectual history, as well as the strength of its legacy.
