Call for Book Chapters
Dharma and Halacha:
Comparative Studies in Hindu-Jewish Philosophy, Culture and Religion
Ithamar Theodor Yudit Greenberg
Haifa University Rollins College
Publisher: Lexington Books
We are seeking proposals for book chapters for our forthcoming co-edited volume Dharma and Halacha: Comparative Studies in Hindu-Jewish Philosophy, Culture and Religion, to be published by Lexington Books. Please send us proposals in the scope of 250 words; our general expectation is for chapters to be approximately 6,000 words but please specify the proposed chapter length.
Possible topics include: Jewish and Hindu ethics, divinity and divine personhood, the divine feminine, revelation, Dharma and Halacha, notions and practices of purity and impurity, the Epics and the Tanach, Tantra and Kabala, priesthood, notions of holy land, practices of pilgrimage, Kosher and Suci, erotic spiritual poetry, the Guru and the Zaddik, the individual and the community, Ayurveda and traditional Jewish notions of health, and women in Judaism and Hinduism. Other themes in modern and contemporary studies are also invited such as the revival of Hebrew and Sanskrit, the exchanges between Gandhi, Tagore and Jewish intellectuals in 19th-20th centuries, Hindu and Jewish reform movements, feminist and gender studies, and modern political thought and theory. Although this volume is focused on Hindu-Jewish comparative themes, we are also open to consider Jain-Jewish comparative topics such as non violence in Jainism and Judaism or sustainability and
ecology in both traditions.
Please send proposals to:
theodor at research.haifa.ac.il or YGREENBERG at Rollins.edu
Deadline: January 15th, 2014
