The Southern Jewish Historical Society (SJHS) will hold its annual conference at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, from the evening of Nov. 1 through Nov. 3, 2008, in conjunction with Emory’s Tam Institute for Jewish Studies. Proposals for sessions or individual papers focusing on any aspect of Southern Jewish history are welcome. Because the SJHS conference brings together a diverse group of scholars and laypeople, presentations should appeal to a broad audience. The committee will begin to review proposals on March 14, 2008, and continue until the program is set. Please send a one-page abstract of each proposed presentation, along with a short bio of each presenter, to SJHS Program Committee, c/o Tam Institute for Jewish Studies, 204 Candler Library, Emory University, Atlanta, GA 30322. Proposals may also be submitted by email to the Conference chair, Prof. Eric L. Goldstein, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Southern Jewish Historical Society promotes research, writing, and public programs relating to the history of Jews in the American South. It holds an annual conference, offers grants to students and independent researchers, and publishes its own scholarly journal, Southern Jewish History.
