[Journal CFP] Nashim No. 37: Feminist Ethnographies / Jewish Women’s Lives

For issue no. 37 of Nashim (Fall 2020), under the consulting editorship of Vanessa Ochs of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Virginia, we are seeking contributions of ethnographic writing from scholars in anthropology, sociology, folklore and related disciplines that attend to the lives of Jewish women in diverse contexts. We are particularly interested in work that can be described as feminist ethnography, which reflects the influence of feminism on strategies of research, methodology, style of writing or interpretation, and in work attentive to such issues as:  intersectionality; dynamics of power;  reframing Jewish practices and thought; and social, political and religious marginalization or empowerment.

We hope to receive proposals both from emerging scholars and from scholars who are already established in their fields. 

Proposals for submissions of up to 12,000 words, not previously published or under consideration for publication elsewhere, should be sent to Deborah Greniman, Managing Editor of Nashim, by July 1, 2019, at Final date for submission of articles: November 1, 2019. All scholarly articles will be subject to peer review. Academic Editor of Nashim: Renée Levine Melammed.

Nashim is published jointly by the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies, the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute and Indiana University Press.
