Call for Proposals

2022 will be the fortieth anniversary of the publication of Yosef Hayyim Yerushalmi's Zakhor: Jewish History and Jewish Memory. It remains a foundational book in Jewish memory studies—and has poignant comments on the role of Jewish historians—but studies of Jewish memory have also developed considerably in the last four decades, both building upon and pushing back against Yerushalmi’s conceptions of Jewish history and Jewish memory. We invite proposals of papers, panels, or roundtables that reevaluate Zakhor in our present moment.
