Sessions with take place on the campuses of Creighton and UNO and also at the Omaha Jewish Community Center.
Gender is a topic that has been part of Jewish life since antiquity.
It has taken, and continues to take, many forms and to relate to a wide array of issues. Within these dynamic parameters, the Program Committee seeks proposals that cover any time period or development from the biblical era to the modern world.
We expect to receive papers from a variety of fields that incorporate different approaches, genres, and media. Whenever possible, we encourage presentations that incorporate visual/audio components.
Support for presenters’ transportation and accommodation will be provided. Those selected to participate will make original oral presentations of their material at the Symposium in a manner suited to an audience composed of the general public, undergraduate students, and other scholars.
Presenters must also be prepared to submit a version of their presentation written in a scholarly format in accordance with our guidelines. Selected papers will be published in an edited, thematic volume as part of the Studies in Jewish Civilization Series published by Purdue University Press.
Proposals should contain a 200-word abstract and a CV; submit them by April 15 to Leonard Greenspoon, Klutznick Chair, at ljgrn@creighton.edu. For further information about the Symposium, see the Klutznick Chair website at http://www.creighton.edu/ccas/klutznick/
