HIST 3231 - Exhibiting Jews: The Jewish Museum


Explores Jewish museums as sites of cultural display that restore, preserve, and communicate the sacred. Topics will include: the culture of contemporary exhibits (i.e. the common topics reflected, the style and design of exhibits), the ways in which nationalism or regionalism affect the ways Jewishness is presented, and the comparative emphasis on history, religion, and art as Jewishness is presented, and the comparative emphasis on history, religion, and art as reflections of ethnographic, cultural, and/or aesthetic barometers for identity formation.
