Southern Jewish Historical Society’s Annual Conference
Call for Papers
Since 1977, the Southern Jewish Historical Society has worked to foster scholarship about the experience of southern Jews. With an annual conference, academic journal, and active grant and award programs, the society has helped to move southern Jewish history from the margins of the American Jewish narrative into the mainstream. For more information about the SJHS, please go to http://www.jewishsouth.org/.
The Southern Jewish Historical Society will hold its annual conference on November 1-3, 2013, in Birmingham, Alabama. 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the Birmingham civil rights demonstrations, and the SJHS meeting will be part of the city’s commemoration of the events. Although the history of Jews and the Civil Rights Movement will be of particular interest, we invite the submission of paper proposals that deal with all dimensions of southern Jewish history. Submission of panel proposals will also be considered.
Paper proposals are due by March 15, 2013. Abstracts should not exceed more than one page. Submissions should include an abstract, a CV, and contact information. For panel proposals, please include abstracts of each paper, CVs for presenters and panel organizer, and contact information for all participants.
Please submit your proposal to Dan Puckett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For additional information please contact:
Dr. Dan Puckett at (334) 241-5478 or Dr. Stuart Rockoff at (601) 362-6357 (Rockoff@isjl.org)
