Cross-listed: Global & International Studies; Historical Studies; Russian Eastern Europe was the largest and most vibrant center of Jewish life for almost five hundred years prior to the Holocaust. In that period East European Jewry underwent a wrenching process of modernization, creating radically new forms of community, culture, and political organization that still shape Jewish life today in the United States and Israel. We will consider topics including the rise of Hasidism and Haskalah (Enlightenment), modern Jewish political movements including Zionism, pogroms and Russian government policy towards the Jews, and the development of modern Jewish literature in Yiddish and Hebrew. Course materials will include primary and secondary historical sources as well as literature. The course will also incorporate guest lectures by faculty at Bard partners in Eastern and Central Europe. Class size: 18
