Description

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 firsthand 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.

Class Format:

Learning Mode: As a DC (Distance due to COVID) course, all aspects of this course will be fully compatible with remote online learning. All lectures will be asynchronous. Discussion sections will be synchronous.
