[Scholarship in Public. The Science of Judaism and its Journals]
Series:Studia Judaica 65
Aims and Scope
The science of Judaism brought a radical change in the perspective on Jewish history and culture. This book applies, for the first time, the perspective of history of communication and of science to examine the journals of this academically peripheral and transnational movement for Jewish studies. On this basis, the Jewish scholarly press of the 19th and early 20th centuries is revealed as the essential medium for communication between scholars and as the primary forum for a Jewish scholarly discourse.
