My name is Rafael Chaiken; I'm the editor for Jewish studies at SUNY Press. We publish scholarly books on Jewish literature, philosophy, religion, history, and culture with a particular focus on the modern and contemporary periods; we also publish in Israel and Holocaust studies. Our Series in Contemporary Jewish Literature and Culture may be of particular interest to this listserv.
H-JewishRhetorics is the scholarly network for Klal Rhetorica, a community of scholars working in the overlapping areas of Rhetoric and Jewish Studies.

You will also find announcements and discussion shared among subscribers to H-JewishRhetorics. Pertinent CFPs can be found in a link on the right hand side of the page.
H-JewishRhetorics is always looking for contributors, bloggers, discussants, resources gatherers, etc. Please join the Network and help us build an active online community! If you have questions or ideas about how you'd like to contribute to H-JewishRhetorics, please contact the network editor, Brandon Katzir, at email@example.com.

When Jan invited me to become a member of the Klal when it was founded I agreed because there just weren't spaces in the field where discussions about Jewish matters, well, mattered.
