The Western Jewish Studies Association will hold its annual conference in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 12-13, 2023.

Call for paper and panel proposals on all areas of Jewish Studies regardless of discipline, geographical focus, or time period.  The WJSA usually includes panels about Jews in the American West, pedagogical aspects in Jewish Studies, and contemporary Jewish issues.  It welcomes panels devoted to the major anniversaries of events in Jewish history or important Jewish individuals in 2023.                                                                                                                     

Paper proposals should be no longer than one double-spaced typed page and should be submitted with a short CV that contains contact information. The submission of panels on a common topic is encouraged.  Organizers of panels should submit a cover sheet with the title of the panel and the titles of each of the papers and contact information for each presenter, followed by the individual paper proposals and brief CVs.

Although it is planning for an in-person conference, the WJSA will feature virtual panels.  If you want to present virtually, you are encouraged to form a panel with other likeminded presenters.  Individual virtual proposals will only be accepted if a thematically coherent virtual panel can be formed with other proposals or if the COVID situation necessitates the holding of the conference virtually.  

Proposals should be emailed to Lawrence Baron at:,                                                                                                              The deadline for submissions is Nov.15, 2022.
