Les éditeurs veulent d’abord et avant tout recevoir des articles qui comparent l'expérience juive canadienne à l’expérience juive d'une autre nation et / ou avec l’expérience d’une ou de plusieurs groupes ethniques ou religieux minoritaires au Canada ou au Québec.

Canadian Jewish Studies/ Études Juives Canadienne


Canadian Jewish Studies/ Études Juives Canadiennes (ISSN: 1198-3493) is an annual, open-access and peer-reviewed journal published by the Association for Canadian Jewish Studies/Association d’Etudes Juives Canadiennes (ACJS-AEJC), devoted to promote scholarly work, in English or French, on all aspects of the Canadian Jewish experience, irrespective of disciplinary perspective.

With 2017 marking the sesquiscentenial of Canadian Confederation [1867], the editors are particularly interested in receiving fully drafted articles, or abstracts for articles that deal with Jewish life in Canada in the nineteenth century, Jews and Federalism, Confederation, and/or subsequent matters relating to Confederation commemorations or remediations. We are always interested in articles that make comparisons between any aspect of the Canadian Jewish experience in comparison or interacting with Jewries from other nations, and/or comparisons and interactions between Canadian Jews and other Canadian religious or ethnic minorities.  

Interested authors are requested to submit a 300-350-word proposal outlining the thesis and methodology of the paper with a short bibliography by June 1, 2016. Authors whose proposal are accepted will be asked to submit a final version of 5,000-7,000 words by October 1, 2016.
