With rare exceptions Jewish American authors of the 20th Century have generally avoided religious themes and instead focussed on immigrants, assimilation, or ethnicity. However in the last decade or so, new voices such as that of Allegra Goodman, Jonathan Rosen, Dara Horn, Nathan Englander, Myla Goldberg, Naama Goldstein, Joann Leegantto name but a few, have emerged which express knowledge and even affirmation of Judaism.
For its 2006 issue, Studies in American Jewish Literure (SAJL) invites essays on authors/works that treat religious tradition, ritual, and Israel from any perspective.
Abstracts of 250, due by April 30, should be e-mailed to guest editor, Evelyn Avery. Contributors will be notified within a reasonable time whether their proposals are accepable. Full essays should then be e-mailed by August 10 to Evelyn Avery.
