The 39th Annual Conference
of the Association for Israel Studies

Will be hosted by The Taub Center for Israel Studies, New York University

June 26 – 28, 2023

Washington Square, New York campus

The Program Committee of the 39th annual conference of the Association for Israel Studies invites scholars from around the world conducting research on any aspect of Israel Studies to submit proposals for organized panels and individual papers. Of special interest are proposals relating to the conference theme — Israel at 75: Archives, History and Society.

The Conference will be hosted by the Taub Center for Israel Studies at New York University, and will take place from Monday, June 26 to Wednesday, June 28, 2023, at the Washington Square, New York campus.

The conference aims to bring together international scholars from any discipline relevant to Israel Studies – including, but not limited to, Anthropology, Arts (music, visual, performance, film, etc.), Conflict Resolution, Disability Studies, Economics and Business, Education, Geography and Environment, History, International Relations, Language and Literature, Law, Media and Communication, Philosophy and Thought, Politics, and Sociology. We particularly welcome papers and panels that focus on the social, cultural, and political challenges facing Israel as it marks its 75th year, as well as changing perspectives in Israeli history and the challenges of preserving and accessing the historical record.

We encourage applications from established and emerging scholars working on all aspects of Israeli history, society, politics, and culture. Full panels are strongly encouraged, but individual papers may also be submitted. The conference is planned as an in-person meeting, but we will be closely monitoring the news and are prepared to switch to online mode if necessary.
