Call for papers - Jewish Women in the Economy
Sarah Ross

Nashim, a Journal of Jewish Women´s Studies and Gender Issues, encourages scholars in all disciplines who deal with the women´s role in the economy, to send proposals for submission.

One of the most important journals of Jewish Women´,s Studies and Gender Issues, Nashim, is calling for papers that deal with Jewish women in the economy. Nashim is published jointly by the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies, the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, and Indiana University Press.

In Jewish history as throughout human history, women have always played central roles in the economy. How has Jewish society, in different parts of the Jewish world, in the past as well as the present, constructed those roles? To what extent have these constructions enabled Jewish women to gain access to money and property, prestige and power? Issue no. 13 of Nashim: A Journal of Jewish Women´,s Studies and Gender Issues (Spring 2007), under the consulting editorship of Sylvie Fogiel-Bijaoui, of Beit Berl Academic College and the Academic College of Management, will be devoted to these central questions.
