CFP: The Jewish Midwest

The Middle West Review welcomes proposals outlining potential articles on various aspects of midwestern Jewish history for a special issue of the journal. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, Jewish life in major cities such as Detroit and Chicago and smaller cities such as Saginaw and Sioux Falls; the experience of Jews in midwestern small towns, on farms, and within other rural settings; prominent intellectuals and artists such as Saul Bellow, Nelson Algren, Horace Kallen, Studs Terkel, Betty Friedan, Marge Piercy, Philip Levine, and Bob Dylan; Jewish political involvement; and, most generally, how life was experienced by midwestern Jews in comparison to the Jewish experience in other American regions. Proposals should be two paragraphs, include a CV, and be sent to by 2/1/20.
