Exile and homecoming have been central concepts in traditional Jewish culture. Representations of the experience of migration, displacement and the homecoming in modern Jewish literature deal extensively with these issues. In this seminar, we will read and analyze literary texts of and about immigrants, emigrants, travelers and exiles from the end of the 19th century to the 21st century. We will also examine central modernist and contemporary thinkers on exile, diaspora, homecoming, displacement, and travel. All texts in the course are in English. In addition, students will work with texts in the original language in which they have good proficiency
