HIS-370 Jewish History From the Diaspora to 1948

This course examines the major trends in Jewish civilization from the beginning of the diaspora to the end of WWII and the creation of the State of Israel. We will devote our attention especially to the ways in which Jewish culture and identity (collective and individual) were constructed in various communities through the centuries, as well as to the relationship between Jewish and non-Jewish cultures and communities.
