         CFP: Studies in American Jewish literature Journal(12/10/06; annual issue); General Ed. Daniel Walden
             
         Topic: Contemporary American Jewish Authors and their Response to Judaism.

            With few exceptions Jewish American authors of the 20th Century have generally avoided religious themes
         
         and opted instead to focus on problems of immigrants, assimilation, or ethnicity. However in the last decade or
     
         so, new voices, such as that of Nathan Englander, Myla Goldberg, Naama Goldstein, Allegra Goodman, Dara Horn,

         Joann Legaant, and Jonathan Rosen, to name but a few have emerged which express knowledge and even affirmation of
    
         Judaism.

            For the 2006 issue of SAJL (Studies in American Jewish Literature) we invite essays on Jewish American

         authors/works that treat religious tradition, ritual, and Israel from any perspective. Abstracts of 250

         words, due by 4/30/2005 should be e-mailed to guest editor, Evelyn Avery, Towson University at

         eavery_at_towson.edu. Contributors will be informed by June 15 whether their proposals are acceptable. Essays

         should then be e-mailed by 8/15 to Dr. Avery.
