Studies in American Jewish Literature is dedicated to publishing work analyzing the place, representation, and circulation of Jews and Jewishness in American literatures, and to serving as a venue for theorizing, as broadly and intensely as possible, the ways in which it makes sense to talk about identity in literature. We understand this commitment to aesthetic inquiry as uncontained by any particular methodological, ideological, categorical, or national project, and we remain open to new work that seeks to interrogate the relationships between writing, reading, genres, histories, technologies, and thinking. We hope to publish special issues at least semi-regularly.

Studies in American Jewish Literature welcomes essays concerned with the idea, development, institutionalization, and/or meaning of Jewish American literatures or, more generally, of the literary-cultural confrontation of "Jewish" and "American." We are interested in questions about the aesthetic and theoretical valences of identity; about the social, economic, cultural, and political history of literature; about professionalization, canon formation, genres, and periodicity; about gender and sexuality; about comparative and interdisciplinary approaches to ethnicity and identity; about reading, reception, pedagogy, and the institutions of interpretation; and about the politics of criticism. In other words, try us. We’re interested more in providing intelligent analysis its due than in imposing formal requirements; contributions may exceed standard length.

Studies in American Jewish Literature has a blind submissions policy; author’s name should not appear in the article proper but should instead be included along with all contact information on a separate title page. Double-space manuscripts throughout; acknowledgments should appear as the first (unnumbered) note. In general the journal follows the recommendations of the Chicago Manual of Style.
