The Group welcomes papers concerning the representation, as well as the theorizing, of the Jewish American experience in such genres as autobiography, memoir, biography, journaling, blogging, and autobiographic fiction. Papers may concern these expressions in a variety of narrative forms such as traditional literature, film, comics, and new media.
