JEWS AND JUDAISM IN THE AMERICAN WORLD OF “DIFFERENCE”:

THE 2014 BIENNIAL SCHOLARS’ CONFERENCE ON

AMERICAN JEWISH HISTORY

Emory University, Atlanta, GA
June 10-12, 2014


Sponsored by the American Jewish Historical Society and

hosted by Emory’s Tam Institute for Jewish Studies with support from

the Knapp Family Foundation.

The 2014 Biennial Scholars’ Conference on American Jewish History will explore where Jews have fit in the diverse ethnic, racial, religious, and economic mix that has characterized American life. By exploring how Jews have been positioned and have positioned themselves in American society and in relation to other groups (including, but not limited to African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, and European ethnics), we hope to answer some of the following questions: How has Jewish experience compared to the experiences of other ethnic, racial, and religious groups in the United States? How have American policies and attitudes toward “difference” shaped Jewish status and self-understanding? What impact have they had on Jewish efforts to assert a distinctive identity and to reframe American conversations about diversity? How has the American racial and ethnic constellation influenced Jewish interactions and relationships with other groups? How have intersecting identities of gender, region, and class complicated questions related to ethnic, racial, and religious “difference”? Are Jews insiders or outsiders in American society? How have these questions changed over time and how have they been reflected in American and American Jewish cultural production?
