Jewishness and the Crisis of Liberalism: The Meaning of Minority Identity
Paul Nahme, Brown University

November 21 | 7 p.m.

Persecuted as racially and religiously other, Jews in modern Germany developed strategies for making sense of their minority identities in turbulent times of cultural and political instability. This talk will explore the meaningful ways that German Jews constructed new modes of cultural flourishing in the midst of a society on the brink. Examining the ways “Jewishness” was both imagined and embodied, this talk will examine what it means to continue to recall this past when making sense of Jewish identity in the present. presented in partnership with the Valley of the Sun Jewish Community Center
