Call For Papers for a dedicated Winter 2020 issue of the Journal of Latin American Jewish Studies.

Latin American Jewish Studies Association, with HBI Project on Latin American Jewish & Gender Studies, is pleased to announce a Call For Papers for a dedicated Winter 2020 issue of the Journal of Latin American Jewish Studies.

The dedicated issue will explore the impactful role of Latin American Jews who have used the visual and performing arts, literature, or activism, to redefine notions of belonging and identity in their societies. By focusing on the combined Jewish and gendered participation of those individuals and groups, the Journal issue will broaden current research in the fields of Jewish Studies, Latin American Studies, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. We welcome articles that tap into different fields of inquiry and promote dialogue between different critical approaches, including comparative papers that bring a global (transnational or hemispheric) lens to their topic. Papers may be written in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.

Interested scholars should send a one-page abstract of their papers to the editors by Dec. 10, 2019 to lajewsgender@gmail.com. Authors of the selected abstracts must be prepared to deliver the full article for peer review by March 2, 2020. Submissions should be 7,000 words (exclusive of works cited) and in MLA Chicago format. Paper submissions are due March 2, 2020. Please direct any inquiries to lajewsgender@gmail.com.
