Research > Jewish Social Studies
Jewish Social Studies: History, Culture, Society (The 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 its ramifications. In reconstructing the past, 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, 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 Derek Penslar and Steven J. Zipperstein, is published three times a year by Indiana University Press. It is a project of the Conference on Jewish Social Studies and is funded, in part, by a grant from the Lucius N. Littauer Foundation.
