Empire and Jewish Studies

By Riv-Ellen Prell

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Fall 2005

The author introduces a series of articles (following this one in this publication) exploring how the field of Jewish studies is reexamining Jewish history through the lens of empire, a transnational form of political and economic power involving relationships that are as much about culture as they are about structure. The author explains that Jewish studies scholars are drawing increasingly on contemporary theories not only to illuminate the subject, but to rethink scholarship in light of it.
