Journal of Contemporary Antisemitism

ISSN: 2472-9914 | eISSN: 2472-9906

The Journal of Contemporary Antisemitism (JCA) is the leading scholarly publication in the field. It carries original academic research papers of the highest quality: quantitative and qualitative work that pushes boundaries in terms of methodology, in terms of theoretical sophistication, in terms of the questions that are addressed and in terms of the potential for impact that the research demonstrates. It is comfortable with interdisciplinary work that relates to historical, empirical, legal, literary and critical theory traditions. It also values work that is situated within specific disciplines and that relates to the existing concepts and frameworks of those disciplines.

The journal is meticulous in following best academic practice in relation to editorial policy and double blind peer review procedures. But this is more than simply a formal adherence to academic rules and norms. The journal works to realize the values of research, of scholarship, of science and of philosophy in a highly contested and controversial field. The editors, the editorial board and the wider community of peer review is deep and diverse yet it is still conscious of a broad consensus of understanding of the boundaries of anti-antisemitism thinking and practice. The journal is not a space for debates between antisemites and scholars of antisemitism, it is a space for the scholarly, scientific and theoretical analysis of antisemitism from an anti-antisemitism point of view.

Latin American Jewish Studies

ISSN: 2644-0598 | eISSN: 2644-061X

Latin American Jewish Studies is the interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal of the Latin American Jewish Studies Association (LAJSA). The journal publishes original scholarship on Jews, Jewishness, and Judaism within the context of Latin America and the Caribbean from the perspective of a broad array of disciplines in the arts, humanities, history, social sciences, and communications. Its mission is to advance the scholarly study of the Jewish experience and presence throughout the Américas through a variety of methodologies and theoretical and conceptual approaches. Latin American Jewish Studies invites contributions from all scholars working in the broadly defined, multidisciplinary field of Latin American Jewish Studies. Submissions are accepted in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. All articles will undergo a rigorous, double-blind peer-review process. The journal also publishes book reviews on recent scholarship in the field.
