Kazin´s memorable description of his life as a young man as he makes the journey from Brooklyn to ´´americanca´´-the larger world that begins at the other end of the subway in Manhattan. A classic portrayal of the Jewish immigrant culture of the 1930s. Drawings by Marvin Bileck.
Derived from interviews with a wide range of people who experienced or observed New York´s 1991 Crown Heights racial riots, Fires In The Mirror is as distinguished a work of commentary on black-white tensions as it is a work of drama. In August 1991 simmering tensions in the racially polarized Brooklyn, New York, neighborhood of Crown Heights exploded into riots after a black boy was killed by a car in a rabbi´s motorcade and a Jewish student was slain by blacks in retaliation. Fires in the Mirror is dramatist Anna Deavere Smith´s stunning exploration of the events and emotions leading up to and following the Crown Heights conflict. Through her portrayals of more than two dozen Crown eights adversaries, victims, and eyewitnesses, using verbatim excerpts from their observations derived from interviews she conducted, Smith provides a brilliant, Rashoman-like documentary portrait of contemporary ethnic turmoil.
Theresia Dingelmaier beleuchtet das Phänomen des jüdischen Märchens in deutscher Sprache aus literaturwissenschaftlicher, gattungstheoretischer und kulturgeschichtlicher Sicht und legt dessen transkulturelles und identitätsstiftendes narratives Potential offen. In einer aufwendigen Zusammenstellung der Textbestände aus dem 19. und 20. Jahrhundert gelingt ihr darin eine umfassende Rekonstruktion des Textkorpus. Viele der Autorinnen und Autoren, darunter Ilse Herlinger, Ludwig Strauß und Irma Singer, sind heute fast vergessen. Dieser Band stellt nicht nur die einzelnen deutsch- bzw. österreichisch-jüdischen Volks- und Kindermärchen vor, sondern auch deren Quellen und Traditionen, Implikationen und Hoffnungen, ihre Adaptionen und Wechselwirkungen und eröffnet darin gänzlich neue Erkenntnisse über die Gattung Märchen. Theresia Dingelmaier aims to shed light on the phenomenon of Jewish fairy tales in the German language from a literary, genre-theoretical and cultural-historical perspective and to reveal its transcultural and identity-creating narrative potential. In an elaborate compilation of the text holdings from the 19th and 20th centuries, she succeeds in a comprehensive reconstruction of the text corpus. Many of the authors, including Ilse Herlinger, Ludwig Strauß and Irma Singer, are today almost forgotten; their fairy tales can only be found in a few archives and libraries. This book presents not only the individual german- or austrian-jewish folk tales and children´s tales, but also their sources and traditions, implications and hopes, their adaptations and interactions, and opens up completely new insights into the genre of fairy tales.
The popularization of history is by no means to be pursued to the detriment of its severely scientific treatment. What is to be guarded against is the notion that tedium is inseparable from the scientific method. I have always been of the opinion that the dulness commonly looked upon as the prerogative of scholarly inquiries, is not an inherent attribute. In most cases it is conditioned, not by the nature of the subject under investigation, but by the temper of the investigator. Often, indeed, the tediousness of a learned disquisition is intentional: it is considered one of the polite conventions of the academic guild, and by many is identified with scientific thoroughness and profound learning....
Rewriting Ancient Jewish History:The History of the Jews in Roman Times and the New Historical Method Amram Tropper
From the Nuremberg Trials onwards, Jews figure prominently in international legal history. Yet ties between Jewish identity and legal thought rarely receive critical analysis. Here, fourteen historians and legal scholars employ interdisciplinary methods and new sources to reconsider the lives and ideas of seven famous international Jewish lawyers.
Jesus was a figure thoroughly grounded in the religious traditions of Judaism, and his Jewish context illuminates his mission and ministry. Two millennia after the death of Jesus of Nazareth, the story of his life and teachings continues to compel scholars and the faithful alike to seek more information about him as a person - living in a particular place at a particular time. Under the guidance of award-winning historian David Zachariah Flanagin (PhD, University of Chicago), you will consider the fascinating body of research that definitively places Jesus within the world of first-century Palestine. As you survey the methods and assumptions underlying the quest to discover one of the Western world’s most enigmatic figures, you’ll gain a rich perspective on the insights and uncertainties surrounding the question of who Jesus was. The Historical Jesus in His Jewish Context is part of a larger audio course titled The Historical Jesus. We invite you to explore the other segments of this course. 1. Language: English.
