Surveys some of the major achievements in literature and film by American Jews in late-nineteenth through the twentieth century. We will proceed chronologically, focusing on the fiction of the immigrant experience, the politicized literature of the 1930 and the 1940s, the literature of the post-WWII era and its struggle to fashion an adequate response to the Holocaust, and on questions surrounding assimilation, acculturation, and identity politics.
