The past decade has seen a tremendous growth of many types of identity research from a variety of perspectives, examining the contours of identity related to location, practice, heritage, culture and language. The production of new identities in different cultural contexts, as well as identity conflicts, has been central to scholarly discussions. In Gender Studies as well as in Jewish Studies, within traditional disciplinary boundaries, these discussions have taken place in the past; however, these topics have rarely been examined in an inter-disciplinary context. For this interdisciplinary conference, we invite proposals for papers that focus on aspects of Gender and Jewish Identity from a variety of fields - sociology, history, literature, anthropology, law, education and philosophy from all historical periods and locations. Paper topics can include academic explorations and theoretical questions related to gender and Jewish identity as well as specific case studies. The conference will take place at Bar Ilan University, June 2-3, 2010. Keynote address will be given by Prof. Sylvia Barrack Fishman of Brandeis University Please complete the attached form and send a short (one page) abstract and CV by January 3, 2010 to email@example.com.We will provide hotel accommodations for those traveling from abroad, and will consider applicants' requests for funding for travel.
