This year, the AAR-WR has asked us to examine the timely question: How can religious groups, and Religious Studies, be a potent contributor to the public good amidst our current medical, social, economic, ecological, and political crises? We in Jewish Studies know that the storehouses of Jewish tradition, the methodological approaches of our sub-field, and the experiences of Jews throughout history offer a great deal of wisdom on these topics.

American Comparative Literature Association Annual Conference 8-11 April 2021
Rabindranath Tagore was the first Nobel Laureate of Asia. He was a multi-talented genius. He experimented in several fields of creativity namely, song, dance, poetry, dramas, short stories, novels, novellas, essays, education, painting and social reformation to name a few. Even after 150 years of his birth, how or why does humankind across the globe still find Tagore universally relevant? This panel aims to explore these diverse facets of Rabindranath Tagore as perceived from a contemporary perspective. The panel welcomes papers which examines Tagore’s works in comparison to other practitioners, either his contemporaries or in contemporary society.
