Announcing the revival of our Canadian Jewish Studies Chapbook Series, which highlights work in the area of Canadian Jewish Studies as well as in Jewish Studies by Canadian writers and scholars. Next up is a revised edition of Franz Kafka, "Josephine the Singer or the People of Mice." The translation, like its earlier edition, is by Karin Doerr with Gary Evans. The new introduction is by Karin Doerr.  Design and layout this time by Bernard Kelly, who will create something as impressive as our Gaspereau Press-produced first edition. Coming soon in fall 2021.


The Institute for Canadian Jewish Studies will sponsor and support online interviews introducing new books in the field.  The first of these profiled Dr. Emily Robins Sharpe’s Mosaic Fictions: Writing Identity in the Spanish Civil War.   

Also, a discussion with Amir Lavie about his recently-defended University of Toronto dissertation, "The Past is Not a Foreign Country: Archival Mentalities and the Development of the Canadian-Jewish Community's Archival Landscape During the Nineteen Seventies."

All interviews, including the most recent with David Koffman (York) on The Jews' Indian: Colonialism, Pluralism, and Belonging in America, can been seen at:
