Van Leer Jerusalem Institute - Call for Papers
The Van Leer Jerusalem Institute is pleased to present the Call for Papers for Journal of Levantine Studies, a new interdisciplinary electronic journal dedicated to facilitating an original discourse and encouraging a wide spectrum of theoretical and empirical scholarship on the region.
It is our hope that framing the Levant as a category of analysis will catalyze novel and productive debate regarding both the notion and realities of the Levant and of Levantines in various geographical and historical contexts. The Editorial Board will welcome scholarly discourse on both the symbolic and theoretical significance of the Levant as well as on the political, social, and cultural manifestations of reality for the people of the region.
The journal will look to publish articles that engage contemporary academic discussions on relevant socio-political topics, including (but not limited to): processes of religion and secularization, the construction of memory, literary and linguistic streams, the migration of knowledge and people, consumerism and commercial networks, globalization, and the study of nationality and trans-
The journal will be published electronically twice a year in English. Each issue of the journal will consist of five-six articles, one literary translation, book reviews, and review essays.
