Papers could include comparative literary analyses of specific texts as well as studies theorizing Jewishness within American ethnic studies as a whole.

Please send an abstract of 250 words to Wenxin Li at liw@sunysuffolk.edu and to Derek Parker Royal at Derek_Royal@tamu-commerce.edu. Deadline for submissions is 15 March 2010.
