The Jewish Cultural Studies Discussion Group of the MLA is seeking
papers for the following session at the MLA's annual conference in
Chicago, IL, December 27-30, 2007.

"Reevaluating Jewish Stereotypes": Jews have long been the target of
antisemitic stereotyping. What is the status of such stereotypes in
the 21st century and in relation to the "new" antisemitism? Have new
stereotypes emerged? Have old ones disappeared? How have Jews
themselves appropriated or engaged such stereotypes?
