The Canadian Society for Jewish Studies (CSJS) will be holding its Annual Conference May 29-31, 2011 at the University of New Brunswick and St. Thomas University in Fredericton as part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences under the auspices of the Association for Canadian Jewish Studies. The conference provides a platform for original scholarly research in Jewish Studies.
Individuals are invited to send proposals for presentations twenty minutes in length that concern some aspect of the Jewish Studies.
Potential presenters are asked to submit a paper proposal by Wednesday, January 5, 2011. The paper proposal should comprise a 400-word abstract formulated to clearly and concisely state the main argument of the scholarly paper and indicate how it will contribute to existing scholarship in the field of Jewish Studies. The abstract should be sent as a .doc or .rtf attachment, double-spaced in Times New Roman font, with the paper title clearly indicated at the top. The name, affiliation, address, telephone number and e-mail of the potential presenter as well as the title of the proposed paper should be located in the body of the e-mail only (and not in the attached abstract). All proposals will receive anonymous peer review. Notification to presenters will occur by February 20, 2011.
All presenters must be paid 2011 members of CSJS at the time that proposals are submitted. Proposals from individuals who are not 2011 members of CSJS will not be reviewed. Membership information for CSJS can be found on our Web site [www.csjs.ca].
As the CSJS annual conference is a component part of the Association for Canadian Jewish Studies annual conference, which in turn is part of the larger national conference body called the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, ACJS conference participants whose paper proposals have been accepted must register in advance for the Congress by paying the required fees for the general Congress registration and the ACJS conference registration. Early bird registration rates are available before April 1, 2011. Participants will receive details on registration from the Program Chair and are also invited to consult the Congress 2011Web site for details. Please note that presentations from individuals who have not pre-registered for the Congress and ACJS Conference will not be included in the Conference Program.
