Dispatches from a Jewish Studies Conference

By Libby Garland

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2001

The author discusses the issues that arose at the closing panel of the Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, where participants ended up discussing and strongly disagreeing about issues of what belongs under the rubric of Judaic Studies - how to understand the boundaries both of and within the descriptor 'Jewish' and among academic disciplines. She draws attention to the implications of this conversation and the power issue involved, and speculates that a transition to a broader, more interdisciplinary Jewish Studies is in progress.
