Welcome to the homepage for the Midwest Jewish Studies Association!
Our organization has been in existence since 1988, and was created with the intention to bring scholars of Jewish Studies together in a more friendly, and less-stressed environment than attending one of the bigger conferences each year. While our focus is predominantly on Jewish Studies within the traditional American Midwest, we welcome scholars and scholarship from all aspects of Jewish Studies–History, Anthropology, Religion, Film Studies, English, Music, etc.–and by scholars from across the globe.
