Research Seminar in Jewish Studies; Jewish Women and Modernity

This research seminar will explore how Jewish women experienced modernization in Europe and America in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. We will read memoirs of Jewish women in Germany, Russia, Poland, and the United States to see how they experienced assimilation, religious change, gender norms, education, and politics. Students will use primary sources to study Jewish women in these places and others.
