Course Description

Colloquium in Jewish Studies (4 cr)
Sarah Imhoff
JSTU-H 520 #8500
W 3-5
Required course for Jewish Studies Ph.D. minors & Jewish Studies M.A. students

What is Jewish Studies? Is it the study of Jews, Judaism, or something else? Is there a method distinctive to Jewish Studies, or is it cohesive because of its object of study? This course will explore the academic discipline of Jewish Studies, including Hebrew Bible, Rabbinics, Kabbalah, Hasidism, Jewish Thought and Philosophy, Literature and the Arts, Religious Studies, and History. We will explore the recent developments and questions in each of these subfields and interact with faculty members who work in Jewish studies in different university departments.
