CFP: 33rd Annual Conference of the Association for Israel Studies (Theme: Balfour Centennial)

scis

The Program Committee of the 33rd Annual Conference of the Association for Israel Studies invites scholars conducting research on any aspect of Israel Studies to submit proposals for organized panels and individual papers. Of particular interest are proposals relating to the conference theme: A Century After Balfour: Vision and Reality.

A century after the Balfour Declaration we wish to revisit the possibilities and ideas reflected in this seminal document in the context of present realities. This centenary provides a lens for scholars to examine topics such as Israel’s attitudes towards imperialism and world powers, Israel in the context of the Middle East, relations between Diaspora Jews and the Zionist movement and the State of Israel, the meaning of a Jewish homeland, the imperative to secure the civil and religious rights of non-Jewish communities, and the role of international institutions in implementing the Declaration. These and other issues invite research and scholarship by the multiple disciplines that constitute the humanities and the social and political sciences.
Deadline for Submission of all proposals: January 15, 2017
  • Panel submissions and individual papers should be submitted using the online submission form.
  • Panel proposals should include information on the panel theme and on each individual paper. Proposals should not exceed 750 words.  We encourage cohesive panel submissions.
  • Individual paper proposals should not exceed 250 words.
  • All presenters will be required to register for the conference and be current AIS members in order to present and be listed on the conference program. Registration can be done directly at the AIS website.
  • Graduate students who have completed their course work are encouraged to submit their proposal and should provide the email of their advisor for approval.
Travel Grants:
  • All travel grant applications should be sent by email to Ilan Ben-Ami, AIS Treasurer, at: treasurer@aisisraelstudies.org
  • Graduate students who wish to apply for travel grants should send a request along with a copy of their proposal and a letter from their advisor.
  • PhD holders without university travel support should send an abstract of the proposed paper and a current CV.
  • The travel grant application deadline is January 15, 2017.

Abstract: Israel is known as a Western state, culture and society. Applying various standards of Western civilisation, Smooha scrutinises and problematizes this international and self-image, questioning whether Israel is indeed Western. He discusses the barriers in Israel’s drive to the West and the alternative options it has (Middle-Eastern, Mediterranean, global).

Notice: changes

After an extended summer hiatus, the OISBB will be renewing operations, but with some notable changes: Posts will be limited to a daily post including a miscellany of notices (publication, events, etc.). Tags will be minimal. Publications will be announced with brief bibliographic details and a URL (where available), but abstracts will no longer be attached. This is intended to diminish the time-consuming efforts of publication, in order to maintain operations, until funds for a more substantial project are available.
