Annual WJSA Conference
The WJSA is a nonprofit organization founded in 1995 to organize a Jewish Studies conference every Spring at alternating sites in the western United States and Canada. The conference serves as a forum for Jewish Studies scholars in this region to present their research, discuss pedagogical issues, network with colleagues in their disciplines, and share information about the funding and organization of Jewish Studies programs.
Title: Western Jewish Studies Association Conference
Location: Claremont, California
Date(s) of Event: March 26-27, 2017
Deadline for Submission: October 31, 2016
The conference will be hosted by Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, CA. Claremont McKenna is part of the Claremont Consortium that also includes Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Pomona, and Scripps College, along with Claremont Graduate University.
Paper proposals should be no longer than one double-spaced typed page and should be submitted with a short CV that contains contact information. The submission of panels on a common topic is encouraged. Organizers of panels should submit a cover sheet with the title of the panel and the titles of each of the papers and contact information for each presenter, followed by the individual paper proposals and brief CVs. Scholars of Jewish Studies, including advanced graduate students, are invited to submit proposals for papers/presentations/workshops. A limited number of modest travel stipends are available for graduate students and overseas scholars who will be presenting papers. Individuals wishing to chair a session should submit their CV.
The WJSA annually confers the Baron Award for the best graduate student paper presented at the conference. The student will receive $200 and a lengthier version of the paper will be considered for publication in Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Jewish Studies.
Although there is no WSJA membership requirement for participation in the conference, a higher registration fee is charged for non-members.
