Latin American Jewish Studies Association Conference 2011

The Latin American Jewish Studies Association (LAJSA) announces the XV
International Research Conference of LAJSA
Arizona State University, Tempe
June 12-14, 2011

First Call for Sessions, Symposia, and Individual Papers
“Going Global: Jewish American Life and Arts”

The School of International Letters and Cultures and the Jewish Studies
Program at Arizona State University invite researchers from different
academic disciplines to participate in a stimulating scientific and
intellectual discussion within the framework of the XV International
Research Conference of the Latin American Jewish Studies Association
(LAJSA), to be held at Arizona State University (Tempe, Arizona) June 12-14,
2011.

Seeking the widest possible range of disciplinary as well as epistemological
perspectives in an effort to encourage the development of new theoretical
and conceptual frameworks, this International Conference of LAJSA aims to
showcase studies of Jews and of Latin American Jewry within the broader
fields of research of the different peoples, cultures and religions in Latin
America, without strict adherence to ideological narratives, in consonance
with the multiple and flexible definitions of the Latin American Jewish
subject.

All those interested in organizing sessions or symposia about a common
theme, together with colleagues from the same or from different disciplines,
should send a title and a brief summary of the proposed session or symposium
(not exceeding half a page in length, single space), in English, Spanish or
Portuguese, by 30 September 2010, to the following e-mail addresses:
david.foster@asu.edu, msbejar@mscc.huji.ac.il. Proposals should include the
conveners’ name(s) and academic affiliation, as well as the names,
affiliation and contact details of at least two other participants. The
approved symposia and the contact information of the conveners will be
announced in November, 2010. Those wishing to present a paper within the
framework of a particular session or symposium should contact the relevant
convener directly.
