Performing Jewish Studies: Theory, Method, and Models

RELI 396
Spring 2009 not offered
Certificates: Jewish and Israel Studies
Course Cluster: Jewish and Israel Studies

Jewish studies is broad in terms of disciplinary approaches and diverse in the ways it conceives its subject matter. This course will focus on how such studies are being differently forged and culturally performed in four areas: Jewish history, Jewish literary studies, Jewish social sciences, and Judaism as a part of religious studies. For each of these areas of study, the seminar will examine a classical seminal work as well as outstanding recent ones that are on the frontiers of knowledge. A number of Wesleyan faculty members and invited guest speakers will join seminar participants in the careful reading and lively discussion of these works as edifying models that advance theory and method for Jewish studies.
