Title: Jews in the Ancient Mediterranean. Special Issue of Journal of Ancient Judaism
Location: None, None
Date(s) of Event: 8/1/2014 - 8/1/2014
Deadline for Submission: 8/1/2014
The Journal of Ancient Judaism invites submissions for a special issue devoted to Jews in the ancient Mediterranean, outside the land of Israel and its environs, from the early fourth to the early seventh centuries. We particularly invite articles that identify and interrogate evidence for Jews and Jewish communities in localized geographic areas, asking a range of evidentiary, historical, and historiographic questions. We welcome work about their social networks, including communications and relations between such communities, as well as investigations of their location within the larger late antique and early medieval Mediterranean. We especially encourage contributions that combine engagement with historiographic and theoretical concerns with the surviving evidence, including material evidence. We invite submission both of completed manuscripts and of detailed proposals (500-750 words). All articles will be peer-reviewed according to the Journal?s usual practices. Completed manuscripts may be no longer than 7500 words, including footnotes. The Journal will consider including images as space permits.

For further information, please contact:
Please email all proposals, as both Word docs and PDFs, to Maxine Grossman ( and to Ross Kraemer (
