Stanford University Press: Stanford Studies in Jewish History and Culture

The Stanford Studies in Jewish History and Culture Series, edited by Aron Rodrigue and Steven J. Zipperstein, features new approaches to the Jewish past in the form of self-reflective and innovative work that opens the field to interdisciplinary scrutiny. The examination in Jewish life of gender, class and social conflict, and the nexus of religion and the state are among important themes still understudied; the books in this series will highlight these areas and, in the process, expand the parameters of Jewish scholarship. In particular, this series seeks to question regnant notions of marginality and centrality and to give heightened visibility to new methodological approaches.
