AJS Conversation Series

The deadline to submit a proposal has passed.

The AJS is pleased introduce the AJS Conversation Series, a series of 6–8 online conversations taking place throughout the 2022 fall semester. The sessions will feature scholarship accepted but not presented at the 2021 AJS Annual Conference.

Only those whose sessions or papers were accepted but cancelled for the 2021 AJS Annual Conference are eligible to apply.

The series will take place over Zoom and will be open to the public. The Program Committee encourages any formal presentations to be planned to be no longer than 7–9 minutes per person, to leave time for audience participation and discussion. Cancelled individual papers are also welcome to submit for consideration, as the Program Committee will do its best to organize at least one session from individual papers.

Deadline to Submit: Wednesday, March 16, 5 PM EDT

Sessions will be selected by the Program Committee; notice of the Committee's decisions will be sent out by early April.

Please note: Accepted but cancelled 2021 sessions and papers may also be resubmitted as proposals for the 2022 AJS Annual Conference (CFP launching March 1), to be evaluated for acceptance and inclusion in the 2022 conference program by Division Chairs and the Program Committee. However, any sessions or papers accepted for presentation in the AJS Conversation Series may not be resubmitted as proposals for the 2022 conference.

The 2022 AJS Annual Conference will take place in person in Boston. The AJS Conversation Series is the only opportunity for online presentation.


The AJS is excited to host this series in conjunction with institutional partners. If your institution is interested in hosting one of these sessions, please contact Michelle Katz at mkatz@associationforjewishstudies.org
