ENGL 3100 - Anti-Semitism in Twentieth-Century American Literature and Film
Introduces the phenomenon of anti-Semitism as it appears in the most important forms of American popular culture—the Hollywood film; the Broadway stage; and the stories, poems, and essays of major Jewish and non-Jewish American writers. Approaches the subject of anti-Semitism from a social and historical perspective, buttressed by close readings of individual works of American literature and close analyses of scenes from Hollywood films. Offers students an opportunity to learn the social, psychological, and religious foundations of anti-Semitism as it has operated in American life and as it continues to operate in the deeper recesses of the contemporary American psyche. Prereq. ENGW 1111, ENGW 1102, ENGL 1111, or ENGL 1102. Cross-listed with JWSS 3100.
