Cashmere Subvention Grant in Jewish Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies


Cashmere Subvention Grant in Jewish Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies
The AJS Women’s Caucus announces a grant of $1000 to support scholarly publication in the area of Jewish Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies. Book proposals to be considered for the grant must make a clear argument for the ways in which the work represents a contribution to any of these fields and a subfield of Jewish Studies. Grant is open to scholars at all stages of their careers. While a contract for publication is not required at the time of application, funds can only be disbursed once a contract with a publisher is executed. In the hope that the subvention grant might help a scholar to secure a contract, the expectation is that the contract will be in hand within 12 months of receiving the award.

To apply, send ONE file (PDF or DOC) which includes:
* 2-5 page CV
* 5-6 page book proposal that includes current state of project
* 2 page selected bibliography
Please send your materials via email to:, by April 30, 2015.

AJS Women’s Caucus Prize for Innovative Scholarship in Gender and Jewish Studies
What is the next step for Jewish feminist and gender studies? In what ways can recent theoretical trends in feminist, gender, queer, and trans-theory impact the various disciplines within Jewish studies?

In recognition of the importance of these questions, the AJS Women’s Caucus invites submissions for its Prize for Innovative Scholarship in Gender and Jewish Studies. The prize will be given in recognition of a paper presented at the 2014 AJS annual meeting within any discipline of Jewish studies that opens up new areas of inquiry or advances Jewish feminist or gender studies. The prize carries a cash award of $500. To be considered, papers must have been prepared especially for presentation at the 2014 AJS annual meeting.
Papers should be submitted electronically in publishable form (PDF preferred), with full citations and bibliography, by April 30, 2015. Submissions should be sent to the Women’s Caucus at
