The Australian Association of Jewish Studies is pleased to issue this call for papers to be presented at its 16th annual conference, which will be convened at The University of NSW, Sydney, Australia on 13-14 February 2005.
The conference theme, Jews as a Minority; Minorities Amongst the Jews, may include any variation on this theme from ancient times to the present day. This is an interdisciplinary conference and papers relating to history, literature, the arts and political science are welcomed. Papers on other topics will be considered, but preference will be given to those bearing directly on the conference theme.
Submissions to present papers must be made by 10 September 2004. Acceptance of papers will be notified by email no later than 15 October.
Abstracts should not exceed three hundred words and must include title, author's name, postal and email address. The program committee will referee all abstracts. Papers of particular merit and significance may be selected for publication in the conference proceedings.
The AAJS encourages students who are engaged in academic research to submit proposals based on their work to the program committee. Authors should clearly indicate their student status with their submission.
