Jews & America

HIST 210
Spring 2019 not offered
Crosslisting: CJST 210
Certificates: Jewish and Israel Studies

This course will investigate why Jews came to America and how they and their children adapted to their new home. It will explore American Jews' relations with other groups, including the Irish Americans, African Americans and the white Anglo-Saxon Protestant elite, and Jews in other parts of the world. Finally, the course will consider Jews' quite significant impact on the American economy, politics, society, and culture. Although it will begin with the colonial era, the course will focus primarily on the 19th and especially the 20th centuries.
