Jewish Social Studies

Jewish Social Studies: History, Culture, Society (New Series) seeks to advance the understanding of Jewish life and its past. Its emphasis is on history--particularly modern and early modern history in all of its aspects, but the journal features work in disciplines as varied as anthropology, politics, sociology, religion, and literature, as well as history. Issues of identity and peoplehood, comparisons and contrasts in the evolution of distinctive Jewish societies and cultures around the world, and the possibilities opened by gender as an analytical category are among the themes of interest to the journal. Jewish Social Studies publishes self-reflective and monographic articles in an effort to rechart the boundaries of Jewish historical scholarship.

Jewish Social Studies, edited by Ari Y. Kelman, Elissa Bemporad, and Julia Phillips Cohen, is published three times a year by Indiana University Press. It is a project of the Conference on Jewish Social Studies and is funded by the Taube Center. For subscription information, please contact Indiana University Press at:
