Jewish Studies Born Digital

The previous two decades have witnessed a revolution in scholarly communications and learning: a massive migration to a digital and virtually connected world. Many of us have been thinking about and studying the impact of electronic information resources and technologies on Jewish Studies. Within the cross-discipline arena of Jewish Studies, alongside the traditional print journals, conference proceedings, and academic presses, are appearing new forms of digital scholarship, discourse and output that are challenging scholars to reorient the way they think about and conduct their work. Going beyond the massive and proprietary digitization projects, digial reformatting, and new digital editions of print and analog works or simultaneous publication of digital and print materials, this includes work and methods of communication that have been "born digitally." This presentation examines scholarly and creative output and methods of discourse that have been generated entirely digitally and do not, or cannot, have a print or analog version. Some of them may have even been initiated outside of the academy or by students.
