New Perspectives on Jewish Studies

In recent decades, scholars in the fields of cultural studies, social theory, and literary theory have challenged the prevailing premises and methodological presuppositions of the humanities and social sciences. Volumes in this series explore the usefulness of these discussions for the study of Jewish thought, history, society, and culture. A major goal of these works is to stimulate critical reflection on the theoretical premises and methodological presuppositions that currently prevail in the field of Jewish Studies.
