CFP: Jewish Literature and Culture Session, Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) 2013

This session will explore the relationship between gender, Jewish culture and history and the influence of these intersections on Jewish identities across and within a wide variety of contexts. How does an emphasis on gender offer a fresh perspective on established texts and histories? In what ways does it give space to previously unexplored narratives, texts, or histories? Papers that explore the impact of gender on Anglo-Jewish literature, culture and history are strongly encouraged.

In order to propose a paper, a paper title, an approximately 500-word proposal, and an approximately 50-word abstract should be submitted online at: http://www.pamla.org/2013/proposals by April 15, 2013 (you will first have to register--proposals submitted before the deadline are most welcome).
