Jews and Education
Religion and Education invites submissions for a special issue about Jews, Judaism and Education. The relationship between Jews and education has taken many forms from ancient rabbinic academies and early modern seminaries, to the Alliance Israelite Universelle and Hebrew Schools, to what Harold Himmelfarb has called the American Jewish "romance with public schools."
Though a tiny fraction of a percentage of the global population, a close look at the experience of Jews in broader educational contexts has a great deal to reveal about relationships between ethno-religious minorities and larger formations of educational discourse, structure, values, intentions, and institutions.
As an ethno-religious minority in countries around the world, Jews have had a varied and complex set of relationships with state-supported educational systems. But as a global diaspora, Jewish people also have a shared sense of identity that connects communities to one another across national, linguistic, cultural, and racial lines. As a result, Jews have both constructed their own educational institutions and taken advantage of state-supported schooling. Higher education has provided its own avenues for engagements between Jews and education as an avenue for social mobility.
This issues of Religion and Education will feature original research into the relationship between Jews, Jewishness, and education from scholars around the globe.
We welcome submissions from a range of disciplines and foci.
Topics may include:
- K-12 education
- Higher education
- Educational Policy
- Church-State issues
- Activism and Advocacy
- Conceptual and theoretical inquiries
- Transnational or comparative studies
Religion & Education is an international peer-reviewed journal of research and reviews that advance civic understanding and dialogue on issues at the intersections of religion and education in public life. We broadly define religion (e.g., traditions, spirituality, secular worldviews) and education (e.g., formal and informal education within schools, professions, and communities). Submissions are encouraged from early-career and established scholars and scholars from historically underrepresented groups.
Unsolicited manuscripts and special issues go through a double-blind peer-review process.
Full manuscripts of accepted articles should be between 5,000 - 7,000 words and will be due by July 31, 2023. For additional questions, please email the issue's Guest Editor, Ari Y Kelman ([email protected])
