Jewish Literatures and Cultures


These essays examine the ways in which Jewish culture has existed in a mutually enriching, if sometimes problematic, relationship with surrounding non-Jewish cultures. Leading scholars in Judaic studies take up broad methodological concerns and specific case studies illustrating Jewish embeddedness in other cultures and re-examining the famous textuality of the Jews, expanding the notion of text to include other works of art, both material and spiritual.
