I am pleased to announce the inauguration of the AJS’s procedures for handling complaints of sexual misconduct, in time for the 2019 annual conference in San Diego. I am also pleased to announce the launch of a new section of the AJS website dedicated to the topic of sexual misconduct.
The roll-out of the procedures and the launch of the website are a proud moment and a double achievement that marks the culmination of the work of the AJS Sexual Misconduct Task Force appointed in December 2017. I thank the Chair, Laura Levitt, and members of the Sexual Misconduct Task Force for their dedication and hard work, and I welcome the members of the newly constituted Committee on Sexual Misconduct who will be responsible for the ongoing implementation of the procedures.
I invite all AJS members to visit the website in order to learn more about the issue of sexual misconduct in academia and Jewish Studies, and in order to acquaint themselves with the range of reporting and resolution options available within the AJS.
