This first-year interdisciplinary seminar will explore the life and culture of East-European Jews before the Holocaust. We will especially focus on the transition from traditional life to the questioning and redefining of Jewish identity. Our effort will be to build a picture of a dynamic society, in which tradition stands in tension with modernity, of a world in constant contact with neighboring cultures. To explore the diversity and vibrancy of this multi-faceted society, we will rely on a variety of disciplines history, literature, art, film, music, anthropology, linguistics. The questions that we will ask about this material include: How are tradition and modernity configured in the cultural artifacts we will be examining? Which myths are being created, reinforced, exploded? How is Jewish identity represented and constructed? Requirements: classroom participation, several short response papers, one research project with parts due throughout the term, and a group-led discussion.
