Primary Instructor:

An exploration of the intersection of classical Hebrew Poetry, vernacular music, Jewish ritual expression, and contemporary popular culture. In this course, we will focus on three examples of cultural hybridity that help limn present-day Jewish identities: (1) the so-called piyyut movement in Israel where Middle-Eastern music and mystical expression—often marginalized and repressed in the early years of the state—have revived and combined with forms as disparate as rock, Indian ragas and jazz; (2) the revival and of Eastern European-rooted forms such as Klezmer and mystical Hasidic chant, and their recasting in the North American, Central European and Israeli spheres; (3) and the globalized hybrid forms of expressive culture in North America that we might call “Newish Jewish,” which employs registers ranging from Shlomo Carlebach to Steve Reich to Pharoah’s Daughter
