Abstract

This article presents an overview of recent tendencies in Latin American Jewish Studies (hereafter LAJS). Two major developments will be surveyed. One is the growth of resources for research; these include new publications, reissues and translations of previously difficult-to-access texts, and scholarly associations and other means of main taining contact between researchers with similar concerns. These developments are especially significant since faculty researching and teaching LAJS have often been hindered by the difficulty of gaining access to information and teaching resources.

Beyond making material available, LAJS researchers have been bringing their own activities more clearly into focus. Scholars have made efforts to identify the direction LAJS is taking and to suggest future directions.
