JWST Minor Requirements:

in addition to JWST 2003, twelve (12) hours of Jewish Studies electives are needed. Other courses with significant Jewish Studies-related content and the possibility for an additional Jewish Studies project (for example Religious Studies courses, Middle East Studies courses, or appropriate literature or cinema courses), subject to approval by the chair of the Jewish Studies program, will also be considered.

The Holocaust might seem far away from us--but it isn't. It affected nearly everything we think about, and continues to affect us today. In this seminar, we will look at how the Holocaust connects to numerous topics, from music and mathematics to Southern history, African and African American Studies, immigration law and gaming. Students will focus on a research project of their own interest. Grad students will conduct additional Jewish Studies research.

Taught by Dr. Jennifer Hoyer. Tues/Thurs 2:00 - 3:15. 

This seminar examines multiethnic, multilingual, multi denominational layers of Ukrainian history and culture during the last two hundred years.

The course includes such writers as Gogol, Bergelson, Babel, Ansky, and Grossman, who wrote in Ukrainian, Yiddish, Hebrew, and Russian. All readings are in English.
