HIST 032 - (HP) American Jewish Identities

Semester Hours: 3


This course will explore the diversity of Jewish identities in the US from a historical perspective. Students will survey the creative paths that Jewish communities and individuals have taken to negotiate and reimagine memories, experiences, and traditions in conversation with each other and with other collectives in American society. Topics will include the relationship between immigration and assimilation, antisemitism and freedom, Zionism and diasporism, communal agreements and polemics, gender constructions and religious differences, ethnic crossovers and racial tensions, and political participation and popular culture.
