Since the early 1970s, scholars of Jewish women have slowly begun to define a place for their work in academia. This effort continues and is bolstered by 30 years of scholarship and growing institutional support. Studies of Jewish women are rooted in many disciplines: literature, philosophy, history, sociology and anthropology, as well as Jewish studies and women's studies. Yet, to date, there has never been a comprehensive study of the number, variety, and location of Jewish Women's Studies courses that are taught at U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities. This working paper aims to redress this gap.
