Journal of Levantine Studies (JLS) is an interdisciplinary journal – published by the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute – dedicated to contemporary critical study of the geographical, social, and cultural settings which, in various periods of history, have been known as the “Levant.”
The goal of this journal is to reclaim the notion of the Levant as a historical, political, social, and literary concept and as a category of identity, classification, and analysis.
JLS seeks to publish articles that engage contemporary academic discussions on relevant socio-political topics including (but not limited to):
- Cosmopolitanism and international movements
- Diaspora communities and networks
- Religion, secularization, and post-secularism
- Borders and migrations of knowledge and people
- The existence of Judeo-Christian, Judeo-Muslim, and Christian-Muslim heritages
While JLS seeks articles dealing with all of the above (and related) issues, we would like at the the present time to offer a special invitation for submission to those writing on Muslim and Jewish communities of Europe.
JLS also encourages a wide spectrum of theoretical and empirical scholarship on various corresponding categories, such as “Mediterraneanism” and “the Orient.”
The journal offers no singular definition of the Levant, thereby acknowledging the fluidity of the geographical and theoretical boundaries of the notion, and the flexibility of time and space required in analyses of multi-dimensional and complex realities, spaces, and identities.
Journal of Levantine Studies will be published electronically twice a year in English and will feature six articles (blind peer-reviewed), a literary translation, book reviews, and review essays. Abstracts of published articles will appear in Arabic, French, Hebrew, and Turkish.

Articles should be sent to the Editor, Dr. Anat Lapidot-Firilla, at firstname.lastname@example.org
