Response to David Shneer

By Casandra Hernandez

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2010

The author responds to David Shneer's article, "Jewish Museums on the American Ethnic Museum Landscape," which raises important questions about the role of ethnic museums in the construction and expression of ethnic identity in the United States. The response argues in support of Shneer's call for more responsive and visionary ethnic museums as well as for the development of new critical approaches to cultural representation in museums and cultural centers.
