Founders, Creators and Builders: Women and Gender in Israeli Society


The reshaping of gender relations and the image of Jewish men and women was a central motif in Zionism from its earliest days. The role of women in the Yishuv and, later, the State of Israel has been the focus of important studies, yet much remains to be researched, particularly in terms of women’s roles in the novel social, cultural, and political realities that have shaped the state.

Israel Studies (Indiana University Press) invites scholars to contribute original, innovative, and unpublished articles to a special issue devoted to women, gender, and innovation in all sectors of Israeli society, politics, and culture, including (but by no means limited to) religious practices and perspectives, health, academia, security, commerce, and industry, and more.

We invite contributions by new and established scholars that offer original perspectives on any of these themes, as well as other areas in which a gender perspective may add novel insights. All articles are peer reviewed. A 400-word abstract proposal should be submitted to Rachel Rojanski and to Bat-Sheva Stern-Margalit no later than June 1, 2021. Notification regarding accepted proposals will be sent by July 15, 2021. Final accepted articles are due no later than October 1, 2021 and should be no longer than 7,000 words including the abstract, keywords, text, endnotes, and illustrations. See Guidelines.pdf
