Call for Submissions for the Spring 2022 Confronting Antisemitism White Paper
Following the successful presentation of the Confronting Antisemitism virtual symposium in October 2021, the Center for Jewish History and jMUSE will publish a White Paper (to be distributed digitally) in March 2022. The paper will connect historical study with contemporary action and future impact. It will:
- present cutting-edge new research and analysis;
- offer institutional case studies to suggest strategies and implications, and resolve barriers to meaningful action;
- identify a landscape of possible initiatives and recommend specific actions; and
- ultimately illuminate the ways in which archives, libraries, museums, and cultural institutions can use their particular strengths to create change.
In keeping with these crucial priorities, the paper will address antisemitism for a diverse public audience; support and encourage ideation; and ultimately strengthen the cultural field as a whole—including by demonstrating how to activate the particular strengths and capabilities of archives, libraries and museums in the fight against antisemitism. The paper’s content will be characterized by innovative and worthwhile ideas, diverse experiences and approaches, intellectual rigor, and the potential to contribute to real-world impact.
To have a short-form piece (up to 500 words), case study (up to 1,500 words), or article (up to 3,500 words) considered for inclusion, please send an abstract of no more than 250 words and a short bio (with title and affiliation) to email@example.com. All proposals must be received by January 5, 2022.
If your proposal is approved for publication, we will notify you by January 18, 2022 and coordinate a schedule for submission, editorial review, and any resulting revisions. Authors whose pieces are selected for publication—and who grant the Center for Jewish History and jMUSE non-exclusive rights to publish their work and distribute it broadly—will be compensated and will retain copyright.
The White Paper is made possible with the generous support of David Berg Foundation and Leon Levy Foundation. To learn more about the symposium presented in October, visit confrontingantisemitism.info or cjh.org/antisemitism.
