The Latin American Jewish Studies Association (LAJSA) invites you to participate in their fourth regional research conference held in New York City. Along with LAJSA’s international meetings, held every two years, LAJSA’s regional conferences bring together scholars from a variety of disciplines and geographical regions. Their research focuses on the lives, experiences, cultural production, and representations of Jews in and from Latin America. For LAJSA’s regional conference in New York we encourage sessions that explore interdisciplinary and comparative themes. We also invite submission of proposals of short creative works to be read or films to be screened (time limit 15 minutes.)

SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE: MARCH 1, 2016

Papers (not to exceed 20 minutes) may be in English, Spanish or Portuguese. In addition to individual proposals, we accept proposals for panel sessions with 3 to 4 presenters; session chair may be one of the presenters. Please include proposal (half a page, single spaced, conveners’ names, academic affiliation and e-mail addresses).

Send abstracts to: lajsanyc2016@gmail.com

There will be limited space for book presentations and/or for PhD dissertations published or obtained in 2015 and 2016 on Latin American Jewish subjects
