Jewish-American Literature - Learn More This Fall!

Learn more about our exciting first-year seminar (89S) on Jewish-American Literature, taught by literature scholar Judith Ruderman.  The course begins in NYC in the late 19th-century, and through fiction and film explores the immigrant experience.  The course then looks at both the suburban experience, and explores attitudes and issues concerning the state of Israel; and finally ends with authors writing about college students - both contemporary, as well as those who were silenced during the Argentinian Dirty War of the 1970's.

We look forward to an excellent course - if you have any questions, please contact Professor Ruderman at judith.ruderman@duke.edu.
