Zero-Sum Game (Not in a Helpful Way)
I didn't buy any ridiculous Brill books at the conference I attended this past weekend. Made up for lost time, though, by ordering a bunch of new books on Amazon that I'd been meaning to buy for a while. From left to right:
David Nirenberg. Anti-Judaism: The Western Tradition. New York: Norton, 2013.
Efraim Kanarfogel. The Intellectual History and Rabbinic Culture of Medieval Ashkenaz. Wayne State UP, 2012.
Kim Haines-Eitzen. The Gendered Palimpsest: Women, Writing and Representation in Early Christianity. Oxford: UP, 2011.
Jon D. Levenson. Inheriting Abraham: The Legacy of the Patriarch in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Princeton: UP, 2012.
Marvine Howe. Al-Andalus Rediscovered: Iberia's New Muslims. New York: Columbia UP, 2012.
Aaron Hughes. Inheriting Abraham: On the Uses and Abuses of History. Oxford: UP, 2012.
Samuel Romanelli. Travails in an Arab Land, eds. Norman and Yedida Stillman. University of Alabama Press, 2004.
Jonathan Safran Foer. Tree of Codes. Visual Editions, 2010.
Vladimir Nabokov. The Original of Laura. New York: Knopf, 2009.
They're all work related. (Even the Nabokov. Really.) Some for research, some for teaching, some for more general writing; expect these titles to crop up here in the not-too-distant future.
