This course introduces students to the questions, texts, methodologies, and perspectives that constitute the broad field of Jewish studies. It begins with a fundamental question: what are Jews, or more precisely, how are Jews constructed that they may be objects of academic study? We will be studying, in turn, some of the various and even conflicting ways in which that implicit question has been answered in contemporary scholarship with reference to different historical, geographical and cultural contexts. We aim for a deeper understanding of the transformations of Jewish experience in modernity and of the multidisciplinary field that has been constituted to study them.
