In the Name of the Father?
A Literary Journey into Jewish Masculinities across the Middle East and North Africa 

The publication project aims to advance the evolving terrain where scholarship on Jewish migration from the MENA region intersects with gender studies, specifically delving into the realm of masculinities. This exploration seeks to shed light on the nuanced experiences of MENA Jewish men during their migration journeys, contributing valuable insights to Jewish, migration and gender studies in the literature.

This collection will offer a pioneering perspective on Jewish masculinities, significantly enriching our understanding of the intricate intersections of aging, gender, and migration. Our goal is to publish these contributions in an edited volume through Edizioni Ca’ Foscari – Venice University Press, ensuring rigorous peer review for scholarly excellence.

We plan to convene a workshop in Venice (Fall 2024 or Spring 2025, date to be announced) where we will collectively explore and discuss our individual contributions, fostering synergies among our diverse perspectives.

We invite you to submit your proposed contribution by February 28, 2024.

Notification of acceptance will be confirmed by March 15, 2024.

(Submission of accepted chapters by approx. December 31, 2024.)
