The author discusses the first American Academy for Jewish Research (AAJR) Workshop for Early Career Faculty in Jewish Studies, a conference of untenured professors which took place at the University of Michigan in May of 2007. She discusses common concerns and trends affecting Judaic Stuides professors, including the complexities relating to the interdisciplinary nature of the field, and the need to rethink the internal and external boundaries of the field.
