THE FOURTEENTH ANNUAL CONFERENCE
MIDWEST JEWISH STUDIES ASSOCIATION
ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
The fourteenth annual conference of the Midwest Jewish Studies Association (MJSA) will be held October 20-21, 2002 in Cleveland. The conference is hosted by the Samuel Rosenthal Center for Judaic Studies at Case Western Reserve University.
The conference welcomes proposals in all areas of Jewish Studies: from any discipline (history, philosophy, literature, religion, sociology, music, etc.) and from any time period (ancient to contemporary). The MJSA encourages panelists to address pedagogical aspects of their topics, and papers centered on pedagogical issues are most welcome.
All interested scholars and professionals of Jewish Studies, including advanced graduate students, are cordially invited to submit proposals for papers, presentations, and workshops. Proposals may be for complete sessions or for individual papers. Individuals willing to chair a session (rather than give a paper) are invited to submit a curriculum vitae, with an indication of areas of expertise.
The deadline for the submission of proposals for individual papers or complete sessions is May 1, 2002. Please direct all inquiries and submissions to:
