For centuries, Jews lived in the multi-ethnic and multicultural region of Eastern Europe side by side with people of many other nationalities and religions. Despite all the tensions and conflicts, the Jews of Eastern and Central Europe succeeded in creating a most original and diverse culture that combined deep religious piety with extreme secularism, and political and aesthetic conservatism with daring experiments in literature, arts, and film.

We will explore the major aspects of East/Central European Jewish civilization through the prism of fiction, poetry, memoirs, and movies, which were originally created in a variety of Jewish and non-Jewish languages. Special attention will be given to the varieties of religious and secular Jewish identities, to the issues of language, assimilation, anti-Semitism, and gender. All readings will be in English, and students do not need to have any prerequisite knowledge of Judaism or European or Jewish history. Requirements: midterm test, a short paper, and a final exam.
