The journal, _Studies in American Jewish Literature_, is interested in
publishing a special issue devoted to the writings of Philip Roth.
Topic areas concerning Roth's writings (fiction as well as non-fiction)
are open, but essays that focus on Roth, Jewish ethnicity, and issues of
postmodernity are particularly welcome. Length of essays should be
5000-7000 words.

The volume number for the special issue has yet to be determined.

Presenters at the Philip Roth Society's panels at the American
Literature Association Conference (Hyatt Regency Hotel, Cambridge, MA,

papers for journal consideration. If you are interested in presenting a
paper at one of the Roth Society panels at ALA, please email a 300-450
word abstract by January 6, 2003. For more information on the Philip
Roth Society, please visit its web site at Information for the ALA and
