The Judaica Petropolitana (http://judaica-petropolitana.philosophy.spbu.ru) has been published since 2015. The Judaica Petropolitana is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed open-access journal of Jewish Studies, dedicated to the exploration of the core issues in Jewish Culture, Philosophy, History, and Religion. It aims to respond both to the traditional disciplinary approaches in Jewish Studies and emerging new fields of research that goes beyond received historiographic categories and concepts. It publishes two issues per year and contains a thematic section, translations and archival publications, essays and reviews.
The recent pandemy does slow down our work to some extent. Unfortunately, in 2020 and 2021 oue journal was not published due to objective reasons. We've only recently returned to our usual course. We've just succeeded to finalize issue 13 and 14 (both for 2020), which are available on the journal's www-page. Recently we've returned to manuscripts which form the issues 15 and 16 (2021).
The Judaica Petropolitana publishes high-quality research articles, essays, reviews reporting results of research in Jewish Studies, with a special interest in cross-disciplinary approaches. It furthermore aims to bring to the attention of the scholarly community many yet unexplored topics, primarily grown from complex and multifaceted history of Jewish life and culture under Russian Empire and Soviet Union.
The main languages of the journal are English, Hebrew, Russian, although contributions are also accepted in French and German.
The deadline for the submissions: November 15, 2022.
The articles will be published after a double blind peer-review process. All articles must conform to our submission guidelines (the APA citation and referencing style, 6th edition; we kindly ask potential authors to request the detailed instruction via email or consult with the instruction at our webpage).
All submissions, proposals and editorial inquiries should be addressed to: Ilia Dvorkin (firstname.lastname@example.org) with copy to Igor Kaufman (email@example.com)
We're eager to keep activities of our journal in spite of the dramatic pressure on international research cooperation in these uneasy times that stems from the barbaric invasion. We hope that scholarly activity helps to overcome, even in little part, the current disasters and barbarism.
