AJS and Its Publications

By Steven J. Zipperstein

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2006

The author, the Vice President of Publications for the Association of Jewish Studies (AJS), describes the ways in which the field of Judaic studies has changed rapidly over recent decades. Among these changes are the impact of interdisciplinary studies generally, and the widening of the definition of the kinds of inquiries which fall under the rubric of Judaic studies, as well as new doubts as to whether Judaic studies ought to exist as its own separate field anymore. The author describes how the AJS is responding to these trends in its publications.
