Ars Judaica: The Bar-Ilan Journal of Jewish Art calls for papers for its prospective volumes. Ars Judaica is delighted to announce it has made an agreement with Liverpool University Press to co-publish the journal from 2019. Liverpool University Press is an innovative academic publisher who combines a distinguished 120-year history and scholarly expertise with the forward-thinking mindset of the post-Gutenberg age. Clare Hooper, Head of Journals at Liverpool University Press said: “we are delighted to be working with the Department of Jewish Art at Bar-Ilan University to publish Ars Judaica. The journal is an extremely valuable resource to all scholars interested in the Jewish contribution to visual arts”.

Ars Judaica is an annual peer-reviewed publication of the Department of Jewish Art at Bar-Ilan University. It showcases the Jewish contribution to the visual arts and architecture from antiquity to the present from a variety of perspectives, including history, iconography, semiotics, psychology, sociology, and folklore. As such it is a valuable resource for art historians, collectors, curators, and all those interested in the visual arts. The ever-growing international community of Ars Judaica authors range from world-renown scholars to young, promising researchers. Ilia Rodov, the journal’s Editor-in-chief stressed: “it is our pleasure to be collaborating with Liverpool University Press to expand the activity of Ars Judaica, established in 2005 as the Michael J. Floersheim Memorial under its founding editor Bracha Yaniv. I am sure that our joint work with Liverpool University Press will be a significant contribution to the excellence of scholarly research and thought-provoking exchange of ideas regarding the visual dimensions of Jewish civilization”.

The fifteenth volume of the journal and the first issue under the new publishing agreement will be published soon and will be fully available online.
