This special issue of Religions seeks varied and diverse analyses of “Jewish secular culture” in two primary arenas, theoretical examinations of the concepts and principles of Jewish secularism, and, material analyses of Jewish secular culture that extend the field beyond traditional historical accounts. Thus new modes of thinking about the topic in relation to Jewish intermediality, analyses that explore the topic synchronically and diachronically, that consider specific signifiers within Jewish material culture are especially welcome. I am also interested in essays that probe Sabbatean recuperations of secular culture in order to reimagine a Jewish aesthetics. The submission period for this issue ends January 25, 2019. Questions regarding potential essays can be directed to Professor Kitty Millet (email@example.com).
