CALL FOR PAPERS: “Jews and Humor”

The Twenty-Second Annual Klutznick-Harris Symposium
October 25 and 26, 2009
The Creighton University Klutznick Chair in Jewish Civilization and the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln Harris Center for Judaic Studies announce
the Twenty-Second Annual Klutznick-Harris Symposium, to take place in
Omaha, Nebraska, on Sunday, October 25, and Monday, October 26, 2009. The
theme of this year’s Symposium is “Jews and Humor.”

The Program Committee seeks proposals in a variety of fields and from many
approaches, genres, and media. We also hope to cover time periods from the
biblical era to the modern world and to incorporate the experiences of
different cultures and societies. Whenever possible, we encourage
presentations that incorporate visual/audio components.

Support for presenters’ transportation and accommodation will be provided.
Those selected to participate will be expected to make original oral
presentations of their material at the Symposium in a manner suited to an
audience composed of the general public, undergraduate students, and other

Presenters must also be prepared to submit a version of their presentation
written in a scholarly format; selected papers will be published in an
edited, thematic volume as part of the Studies in Jewish Civilization Series.

Proposals should contain a 200-word abstract and a complete CV; please
submit them by April 15 to Leonard Greenspoon, Klutznick Chair, at For further information, see the Klutznick Chair
