Call for Papers

Are you doing research in Jewish women’s/gender studies?
Do you want a supportive place in which to receive constructive feedback about your work?
Would you benefit from discussing your work with other feminist/Jewish studies scholars?

The Jewish Feminist Research Group offers affiliated and independent scholars and graduate students a forum in which to present papers, research or works-in-progress that link feminist scholarship with Jewish studies. The group provides an ideal setting for the testing of material intended for publication or presentation in other academic arenas.

The format of each colloquium is as follows: Before each session, all subscribers to the group receive copies of the paper to be discussed. Each session begins with a brief presentation by the evening’s presenter followed by a critique from two respondents in the presenter’s field. The floor is then opened for further discussion. All sessions take place at The Jewish Theological Seminary.

The JFRG seeks your participation in the following ways:

1.) By presenting a paper or work of scholarship to the group.
2.) By responding to a paper.
3.) By publicizing our sessions to your students, colleagues and friends.
4.) By subscribing to the JFRG for $36 for the year, which guarantees the receipt of all the papers in advance of the sessions.
5.) By attending the sessions.

Those interested in presenting a paper should send a brief abstract (400-500 words) to: or to: The Jewish Theological Seminary, Women’s Studies Department Box # 131, 3080 Broadway, New York, NY 10027. Checks and donations can be written to the JFRG and mailed to the above JTS address.
