Jewish Literature and Culture
From its inception, Jewish culture, whether defined in religious or secular terms, has been shaped and reshaped by the written word. The result has been a rich legacy of literary production and textual interpretation that begins in the biblical period and continues to this day. This series is devoted to encouraging study of this vast and varied corpus in all of its forms. While a major focus will be on Jewish writers and writings of the modern and contemporary periods, manuscripts examining pertinent material from earlier periods will also be considered. The series aims to publish distinguished work that advances understanding of the contributions of Jewish literature to the evolution of culture broadly conceived. It is open to considering manuscripts that employ a range of scholarly methods and critical approaches, with a premium on originality of insight, clarity of expression, and accessibility to readers both within academic circles as well as the educated public at large.
