CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Mysticism Unit and Study of Judaism Unit

Call for Papers: 

Jewish Mysticism -
Mysticism has always been a somewhat controversial topic within the tradition of Judaism. From the inside, Kabbalists and other Jewish mystics have pushed the boundaries of the tradition in provocative ways, and from the outside scholars have debated whether the category of mysticism applies at all, and (if so) what types of mystical experiences may be found within Judaism. This panel welcomes proposals on the intersections of mysticism and Judaism, exploring the sometimes tense relationship between the analytical category and the varied traditions of the religion.
