Jewishness and Modernism

This panel will focus on Jews and Jewishness in literature and other cultural texts (for example, political documents, polemical publications, medical research, and popular journalism) during the modernist period. Papers for the panel should present innovative pairings between literary and cultural texts, challenging the way Jews and Jewishness in modern literature have traditionally been viewed. They may concern, but are not limited to, the following topics: constructions of Jewishness, stereotype, images and sources, Biblical readings, the relation between Yiddish modernism and Anglo-modernism, Jewishness and the post-colonial, immigration, and anti-Semitism.
