Main Description
Canadian Jewish Studies is a young field, often lost in the shadow of its American older sister. In The Canadian Jewish Studies Reader, editors Richard Menkis and Norman Ravvin demonstrate that what's going on in Canada, critically and artistically, is every bit as interesting as the work being done in the United States.Taking a cultural studies approach, the editors view the way that Canadian Jewish identity is examined in literature, visual arts, historical writing, feminist research and urban geography, among other fields. Included, too, is a preface that introduces the field and argues for the particular interest of Canadian Jewish Studies to readers and students in the international community. The articles are supplemented by a range of exciting visuals.The Canadian Jewish Studies Reader also features new work by both editors in their exploration of Canadian literature and history.
