Publication Series

Perspektiven Jüdischer Studien | Perspectives in Jewish Studies

(Hg. Elke Morlok / Judith Müller / u.a.)

The series highlights the diversity of aspects and methods of Jewish Studies and at the same time aims to initiate an intensive reflection on the future of the same. Not only the self-definition of the subject and the internal perspectives of the researchers are to be considered, but also the perspectives from Judaism itself. The multi-layered and multi-perspective discourses of Jewish Studies with cultural studies, history and literature, theologies, sociology, and many other subjects should also be re-located from the internal view of Jewish materials themselves. How did Jewish studies become part of trans- and interdisciplinary discourses? What is their current task – from an emic and etic perspective? What new research priorities need to come into focus from the perspective of Jewish students and communities? How can a meaningful shaping of interreligious discourses look like from the perspective of Judaism? Above all, forward-looking perspectives for the discipline and its numerous networks are to be developed to adequately meet current challenges both in academia and in society.

The series includes monographs, anthologies, and outstanding dissertations and habilitation theses.

The editors are particularly interested in promoting women in academia and welcome monograph manuscripts by young women scholars, edited volumes with at least an equal number of female authors, and related thematic emphases.
