American Jews and Music: Assembling New Canons and Contexts

Special Issue of Studies in American Jewish Literature, Guest editors: Jonathan Freedman and Laurence Roth
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 13, 2018

If the first major waves of popular interest in, philanthropic funding of, and scholarship on contemporary Jewish music and songwriters in the U.S. have finally receded, they've left a treasure in their wake. From Orthodox popular music and chazzanut, to jazz masters of the 1930s, to hipster oddities of the “new Jewish music” scene, to gypsy-punk klezmer cabaret bands and the Jewish identified art of Leonard Cohen and John Zorn, today’s audiences have access to a wealth of Jew-ish sounds and entertainments.


Visualizing Change: Graphic Arts and Literature in the Contemporary Arab World

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 3:36pm
Eid Mohamed and Barkuzar Dubbati (Guest Editors) / Arab Studies Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 1, 2018

This special issue focuses on the rise of graphic literature and arts in the Arab world as a means of expression, representation, and political resistance against ideological hegemony. We are interested in scholarly works that examine the intersectionality of the literary and artistic production created before, during, and after the Arab uprisings and the significance of the development of means of production of these works. The uprisings that began in Tunisia in December 2010 popularized the use of non-traditional and independent media for publishing. It proved that seekers of political change do not need the sponsorship of traditional media.

The Holocaust and the Domestic

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 3:18pm
NeMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

As Holocaust survivors were liberated from concentration camps, prisons, and places of hiding—among other compromised milieus they were forced to inhabit from 1939–45—they brought the memories and the trauma of the Holocaust to the places they eventually came to call “home.” Bringing such emotional and psychological burdens with them, many survivors settled abroad—from Argentina to Canada and from the United States to Israel—and established families, rearing those who would later be called “second-generation” Holocaust witnesses. These children of Holocaust survivors (and their children) have become the carriers and bearers of their parents’ memories and trauma that came to define the domestic experience of survivor households.
