Call for Papers for the Galitzianer

Gesher Galicia SIG

Gesher Galicia’s journal, the Galitzianer, invites members and non-members of Gesher Galicia to submit articles with a clear connection to Jewish life in Austrian Galicia (1772–1918). Submissions can also relate to Jewish life in the territory of former Galicia during the interwar period and the Holocaust.


Although the subject area is broad, here are some suggestions for possible article submissions: 

  • Family stories, including ones that involve archival records from Galicia and other sources that have reshaped your understanding of your own family history
  • Profiles of Jewish writers, musicians, artists, political figures, or others who were active in Galicia
  • The intergenerational tensions over education and professional careers for Jewish women in Galicia 

Prior to submitting an article, please contact me at submissions@... with a brief description of your proposal. Once accepted, all submitted articles undergo editorial review and revisions to make sure they conform to the style and standards of the journal.
