Brill: Announcing the David R. Blumenthal Prize in Medieval Jewish Studies
The David Blumenthal Prize in Jewish Studies selection committee is soliciting book-length manuscripts in Jewish Studies that utilize historical, literary, and philological methods for the study of Jewish life in the Islamic world as well as medieval Jewish Studies generally.
Named for the eminent scholar David R. Blumenthal of Emory University, long-time editor of the Etudes sur le judaisme medieval (EJM) series at Brill, the prize-winning manuscript will be published in the EJM series. The prize winner will also receive $500 cash and $500 in book credits from Brill. Brill particularly encourages junior scholars to submit manuscripts for this prize; nominations for the prize may be submitted by scholars on their own behalf.
To be considered for the prize, complete manuscripts must be submitted by 1 June 2015 to Katelyn Chin. The winner of the prize will be announced at the Association for Jewish Studies (AJS) conference in December 2015.
