The 18th World Congress of Jewish Studies

Can We Hope for Digital Commons in Jewish Performance Studies?

Concluding the session, I will raise a vision for a digital space that will enable a growing knowledge hub for Jewish performance studies. What would be the first actions to implement such a space? what would be its affordances and challenges? I will draw lessons from work on the Dybbuk database and applications as well as on other projects in Jewish studies, with special regard to issues of scalability and sustainability.
