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.

The idea and practice of public theology has recently emerged as a distinct field of scholarship that proactively engages theology with contemporary public issues. The global project of public theology has expanded the western idea of three audiences - the church, the academy and the public domain – and their inter-relationship to multiple publics. It has now become a global discipline that intersects with the emergence of a world Christianity. Now, in the Anthropocene, those three audiences should be viewed in the light of a concern for the whole of creation, including those other creatures with whom we share life and upon whom we depend.
A public theology seeks to be in creative dialogue with different academic disciplines, including politics, economics, law and security studies, cultural studies, religion, spirituality, the natural science and the social sciences and the study of globalization. It is sensitive to the emergence of new publics that arise out of theology’s engagement with other new disciplines – like astrobiology – which redefines understandings of what is space and what is public. It is also a discipline that welcomes the expertise of practitioners reflecting on public policy.

The International Journal of Public Theology, affiliated with the Global Network for Public Theology, is a platform for original inter/transdisciplinary research in this field. Manuscripts submitted for publication must exhibit clear and sustained engagement between theology, broadly construed, and a matter or matters of public significance.
All articles undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and blind refereeing by two anonymous referees.

Science of Religion

Abstracts and Index of Recent Articles

Edited by Katja Triplett

The objective of Science of Religion is to provide a systematic bibliography of articles which contribute in various ways to the academic study of religions. This in turn is intended to facilitate the work and international collaboration of all scholars working in this field. The abstracts published in Science of Religion are drawn from a wide range of journals in various languages and reflect a range of contributory or complementary disciplines. The list of periodicals consulted is reviewed regularly and suggestions for improvement are welcomed. Science of Religion does not seek to appraise or criticise the contents of any articles. Nor does it endorse any of the religious standpoints or agendas referred to in the articles abstracted. In all cases the individual authors are responsible for their own opinions and any reference to these opinions should take account of the complete article in the original source. Science of Religion is published by Brill with the support of the International Association for the History of Religions (IAHR).

The online version of Science of Religion, the Index to the Study of Religions Online, can be found here.
