RELI 049 - (HP) Post-Holocaust Jewish ThoughtSemester Hours: 3
This course introduces students to the post-1945 engagement of Jewish thought with religion, politics, race, and sexuality. It will survey major trends and open the space for in-depth readings of Jewish thinkers who write in the shadow of – but are not limited by – Holocaustic historical memory. Topics will include discussions on the ethics of survival, the role of political empowerment, the heritage of those defeated by genocide, changing conceptions of race and gender, and the space for a global justice project.
