IMAGES

A Journal of Jewish Art and Visual Culture

Ranana Dine

Editor-in-Chief Steven Fine, Margaret Olin and Maya Balakirsky Katz

The study of Jewish art and visual culture, which has been cultivated for over a century in European, American and Israeli institutions, has burgeoned in the recent years. Major universities have established graduate programs that integrate Jewish art and visual studies and Jewish museums dot the landscape in Israel, Europe and North America.
Contemporary scholarship on Jewish art and visual culture intersects with concerns of the wider academy; a lively interchange among scholars has ensued. The field has now achieved the breadth and maturity to sustain an international journal that represents the interests of this interdisciplinary community of scholars.
The IMAGES invites scholarly articles on Jewish art and visual culture, ranging in time from Greco-Roman antiquity to the present day. Articles may concentrate on any geographical area in which Jewish participation had an impact, and any discipline, including architecture, painting, sculpture, treasury arts, book arts, graphics, textiles, photography and film, and other areas of the visual environment. In addition, IMAGES welcomes articles on historiography and theory, as well as textual studies that reflect on the themes of the journal.
Each edition of IMAGES will include 4-5 articles; reviews of books and exhibitions; and notices of scholarly conferences or symposia on Jewish Art.

Zutot

Perspectives on Jewish Culture

Edited by Irene E. Zwiep and Avriel Bar-Levav

Zutot: Perspectives on Jewish Culture aims to fill a gap that has become more and more conspicuous among the wealth of scholarly periodicals in the field of Jewish Studies. Whereas existing journals provide space to medium and large sized articles, they neglect the small but poignant contributions, which may be as important as the extended, detailed study. The Zutot serves as a platform for small but incisive contributions, and provides them with a distinct context. The substance of these contributions is derived from larger perspectives and, though not always presented in an exhaustive way, will have an impact on contemporary discussions. The Zutot covers Jewish culture in its broadest sense, i.e. encompassing various academic disciplines—literature, languages and linguistics, philosophy, art, sociology, politics and history—and reflects binary oppositions such as religious and secular, high and low, written and oral, male and female culture.
