Annual WJSA Conference
The WJSA is a nonprofit organization founded in 1995 to organize a Jewish Studies conference every Spring at alternating sites in the western United States and Canada. The conference serves as a forum for Jewish Studies scholars in this region to present their research, discuss pedagogical issues, network with colleagues in their disciplines, and share information about the funding and organization of Jewish Studies programs.
The 2015 conference will be held at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, Wednesday May 13-Thursday May 14, 2015
