The Journal of the Short Story in English: Special Issue on Henry Roth.

Although Jewish American writer Henry Roth is best known as a novelist, he
also left behind a rich store of short stories, both published and
unpublished, at his death in 1995. The majority of published pieces,
collected together in the 1987 volume, Shifting Landscape, were written
during the 60-year period between his first novel, Call It Sleep and his
second Mercy of a Rude Stream.

received much attention. But submissions are invited across historical
periods and disciplines, including Hebrew Scriptures and Ancient Israelite
Culture, commentaries on the laws, and the areas of Judaic, Queer, and
Women's Studies across various disciplines. Submissions can include what it
means to be queer and Jewish in pedagogical, religious, and political
