Authentically Jewish

Stuart Z. Charmé

How do you know when someone or something is really, authentically Jewish?  This book argues that what is authentically Jewish is continually changing in response to historical and cultural developments, the shifting attributions of meaning that individuals make, and the negotiations that occur as different groups struggle for recognition.

Movie-Made Jews

Helene Meyers

Movie-Made Jews focuses on American Jewish cinematic tradition. This tradition includes fiction and documentary films that make Jews through antisemitism, Holocaust indirection, and discontent with assimilation, and through unapologetic assertion of Jewishness, queerness, and alliances across race and religion. While it’s a truism that Jews make movies, this book demonstrates how movies make Jews.

Eli Bromberg
