Imagining Jewish Modernities: Reflections on a Graduate Student Conference in Jewish Studies

By Rachel Shulman, Jennifer Young

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Fall 2005

The authors discuss their reasons for convening a graduate colloquium in Jewish studies (the first of its kind) at the University of Illinois at Urbana in April 2005. Among these reasons was the question: what is the difference between Jewish studies and studying Jews? The authors also discuss themes from the colloquium, including the ways in which Jews in varying locations and contexts imagined themselves to be part of a larger European civilization.
