JWSS 2259 - Women in Jewish Culture
Surveys the roles of women in Jewish culture from biblical times to the present, from the Middle East to the United States. Using both secondary literature and a wide range of primary sources, such as memoirs, sermons, speeches, fiction, and film, the course explores the ways in which Jewish women’s lives overlapped with but also often differed from those of both Jewish men and non-Jewish women. Important themes of the course include women’s religious lives, portrayals of women in literature, gender divisions of labor, family roles, female involvement in political and social movements, and acculturation to surrounding societies.
