Jewish Law Association: 18th International Conference

July 14, 2014 – July 18, 2014 all-day
University of Antwerp, Belgium

The next International Meeting of the Jewish Law Association will take place in Antwerp, Belgium, on 14th-17th July 2014, hosted by the university’s Institute for Jewish Studies directed by Professor Vivian Liska.

The Conference will give preference to papers on the theme “Judaism, Law and Literature”, viewed broadly as including papers on any period (law and literature in the Bible, rabbinic literature, and modern secular literature), and as encompassing both law in literature and law as literature, from both applied and theoretical/methodological perspectives. Comparative perspectives will also be welcome.

Proposals of papers should be sent to the Chair of the Conference Organising Committee, Professor Bernard Jackson at by December 31st 2013. They should contain a title and abstract.
