N. Tamarkin.

This course examines connections between Jewishness and race. Highlighting ambiguities, ambivalences, and complex interrelationships among political, legal, social, cultural, scientific, and religious ways of defining and marking racialized difference, our analyses will be grounded in specific times and places. We will emphasize how ideas of race and Jewishness have emerged, shifted, and been contested. Throughout the course, we will be attentive to how ideas of race relate to ideas of ethnicity, nation, peoplehood and genealogical relationality; how race is co-constituted with gender and sexuality; and the overlaps and divergences between how racism and anti-Semitism have been theorized, deployed, and experienced.
