Shofar: A 35-Year Retrospective

December 15th, 2017

In 2018, the long respected publication Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Jewish Studies welcomes a new look, a new schedule, and new editors. Purdue University Press reflects upon and celebrates the past 35 successful volumes in preparation for the Association for Jewish Studies annual conference, where the future of Shofar will be unveiled in our exhibit booth.

In recognition of the hard work of so many scholars over more than three decades, the Press has composed a special issue, “Shofar’s 35-Year Retrospective,” which is freely available via open access on Project MUSE through the end of January 2018. After January 31, the special issue may be accessed through your institution’s subscription to Project MUSE.

This special issue includes a 25-year retrospective article written by Shofar Founding Editor Joseph Haberer and published in 2008. It also contains a never-before-published 35-year retrospective article written by Shofar Editor Emeritus Zev Garber. Finally, the issue features the top 10 most downloaded articles from online journal distribution partners Project MUSE and JSTOR.

Purdue University Press will exhibit in booth 130 at the Association for Jewish Studies annual conference December 17-19. Please stop by the booth at any time and meet the new editors of Shofar, Eugene M. Avrutin and Ranen Omer-Sherman, during the Monday morning coffee break hosted by the Press.
