JDS 335LEC The American Jewish Experience: History, Social Justice, and the Counter Culture

Lecture

During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, many Jews who fled persecution in Europe immigrated to America. By the 1950s, the United States became home to the largest Jewish community in modern history. In this course, we will explore the ways in which life in a liberal political and capitalist economic order shaped the Jewish experience in America, and how Jews, in turn, came to influence American culture, politics, and society. This course is the same as HIS 335, and course repeat rules will apply. Students should consult with their major department regarding any restrictions on their degree requirements.
