COMM 101 and COMM 102 strongly recommended.
Repeatability:

Primary Instructor:

Judaism--as religion, race, ethnicity and culture--is a fascinating area of study for communication scholars. Jewish Americans have long experienced many forms of in-betweenness (insider/outsider, "model minority"/marginalized, White/racialized "Other," etc.). In this course, students will gain first-hand knowledge of how American Jewish identity is conceived and represented, ranging from stand-up comedy to films about the Holocaust, from documentaries about Jewish tattooing to ethnographies about kosher butchers in small-town Iowa, and from Jewish hip hop artists to vampires. Students will come away with a better knowledge of what it means to "be" Jewish in the US and how that is represented, and how understanding Jewish identity lends to better understanding other identity issues.
