Gender and Jewish Studies: Reshaping a Field
Paula E. Hyman, Yale University
This lecture will analyze the impact of gender-sensitive scholarship on our understanding of Jewish history and culture, as well as the pockets of resistance to this relatively new perspective.

Reading Jewish Women's Writings
By Esther Frank, Dept. of Jewish Studies, McGill University
The proliferation of writings by Jewish women in America, the expansion of scholarship, and the 1997 publication of Jewish Women in America An Historical Encyclopedia herald a new moment in the study of Jewish writing. When taken together, these features point to a current interest in women's writings and argue for a revitalization of Jewish concerns in America.
