Rel 120 Newish Jewish: New Forms of Judaism in North America (4)

The new millennium has seen the emergence of new forms of Judaism and of Jewishness in North America: Jewish hip hop music, graphic novels, zines, performance arts, blogs, earth-based spirituality, and ecological activism.  The course will examine the roots of these phenomena in Jewish traditions and texts and in American popular culture, and explore the uses of hybridity and pastiche in the forms of Jewish identity they create.  (HU)
