|Course unit overview||
"Jewish studies" may be understood broadly as the study of Jewish history and culture, in all its manifestations. To study it at university level is to combine the traditions of disciplined academic research with the richness of Jewish culture and experience. This course will approach the subject from the perspective of the history of Jewish/non-Jewish relations, specifically, Jewish engagement with Christian and Islamic religious cultures, and with Western modernity, of which the academic study is a part. As a team-taught course, it draws on expertise in the development of the modern academic study of Judaism, the ancient Greek and Christian context of classical Judaism, Judaism’s encounter with modernity and modern Christianity, and Jews in the context of Middle Eastern Muslim and Arab culture in the pre-Zionist and Zionist periods.
