Humanities E-Book
The Online Collection
Developed By Scholars

As part of its forthcoming title release in summer 2015, the ACLS Humanities E-Book (HEB) collection will feature the first five installments of the Littman Library of Jewish Civilization‘s Jewish Cultural Studies series. These titles, edited by Simon J. Bronner, focus on the concept of Jewish identity as perceived by both Jews and non-Jews, exploring the cultural dimensions of concepts such as homeland and diaspora, assimilation and separation; as well as cultural institutions like the media, museums, schools and synagogues; and examining these from both religious and secular perspectives. The series is published by the Littman Library of Jewish Civilization for the Jewish Section of the American Folklore Society, one of the 31 learned societies that work with HEB on collection development.

The Littman Library is a respected leader in Jewish Studies titles; 28 volumes of its ongoing series Polin: Studies in Polish Jewry are currently already available as part of the HEB collection.
