The course asks you to consider the contributions Jews have made to American life—in particular, the literary and political cultures of the United States—and the struggles they endured in order to make those contributions. Since arriving in the United States, Jews have found themselves alternatively persecuted and assimilated. Out of an often-awkward relationship with the majority culture, American Jews have fashioned intellectual and political cultures worthy of examination. This course takes students to New York, Philadelphia and Washington to examine points of triumph and loss, power and powerlessness, in the American Jewish experience.
Program Fee: $970 (2014), plus tuition and fees.
