Book Launch for Jewish Cultural Studies

The Sam & Helen Stahl Center for Jewish Studies presents a conversation inspired by Simon J. Bronner's new book, Jewish Cultural Studies (Wayne State University Press). The book aims to spark a discussion of the distinguishing features of Jewish culture and the ways it has been studied, and often misrepresented and maligned.

Prof. Bronner, Dean of the College of General Studies and Distinguished Professor of Social Sciences at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, will discuss the significance of Jewish cultural studies now and in the future with three noted scholars: Sander Gilman (Emory University), Jonathan Boyarin (Cornell University), and Lisa Silverman (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee). Examining a shift in Jewish Studies toward the cultural subject that make it intriguing and necessary not only for Jews but for students of identity, ethnicity, and diversity, the panelists will explore events and actions identified as Jewish to discern what makes them appear Jewish, and why.

Free. Preregistration required. Register here.

The Stahl Center is grateful for the co-sponsorship of Wayne State University Press and UWM's College of General Studies
