In geveb: A Journal of Yiddish Studies invites proposals for a Special Issue of the journal, featuring a guest-editor (or editors) and a collection of academic articles.
The proposed Special Issue may be organized around particular themes, figures, or questions that are currently driving—or should drive—the field of Yiddish Studies. Subject, field, and time period are not restricted. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary proposals. As an online journal, we will also prioritize projects that take advantage of contemporary digital media by incorporating sound, images, film, and other digital resources.
The Special Issue should plan to include at least three scholarly articles. In addition to the articles, the issue may also include book reviews, translations, and pedagogical material related to the theme, to be published in their respective sections of In geveb. The guest-editor(s) of the Special Issue will also write an introduction to the collection.
Upon selecting a proposal, the editors of In geveb will work with the guest-editor(s) to prepare the Special Issue, including organizing a call for papers and conducting a thorough peer review of submissions.
If you are interested in curating a Special Issue, please submit a proposal of no more than 500 words by January 15th to [email protected]. Proposals should include a description of the Special Issue and, if possible, the names of potential contributors. For specific questions, please email Sunny Yudkoff ([email protected]) and Saul Zaritt ([email protected]).
