Jewish Women in the Americas
Jews have been present in the Americas since the fifteenth century; there is a growing body of scholarship examining this presence from multiple perspectives. The Lexington Books series Jewish Women in the Americas expands our knowledge of Jews in this geographical area through its particular focus on the diverse experiences and perspectives of women. These experiences and perspectives are often communicated creatively―through literature, plastic arts, dance, and other modalities. Reflecting on these expressions of lived experience through a range of interdisciplinary approaches enriches our understanding of what it means to be Jewish, in the Americas.

This series welcomes original scholarship that explores a wide range of perspectives, approaches, and methodologies by and about Jewish women that advances our understanding of Jews and Jewish women in the Americas. We welcome proposals and abstracts for original monographs, edited collections, and English-language translations of manuscripts originally written in other languages.
