European Jewish History
This programme looks at Jewish history, culture and thought in Europe. It provides a grounding in approaches and theories which have influenced the ways in which scholars understand Jewish history. You will explore the Jewish response to modernity and problems around the definition and issues of assimilation and identity. The role of anti-Semitism and the origins of the Holocaust are central, as is Jewish intellectual history, focusing on the ideas of eminent Jewish thinkers about the place of Jews and Judaism in pre-modern and modern society.
An upper 2nd Class Honours undergraduate degree or higher in history or relevant humanities subject (or overseas equivalent). Mature students are encouraged to apply.
Optional modules may include: Modern Jewish history and culture; Christians and Jews in Europe: perceptions and encounters, 1100-1600; Jews, power and intellectual history; anti-semitism and the holocaust; modern European Jewish literature; Hollywood and the 2nd World War; overcoming Nazism.
Students produce one essay of 4,000 words for each of the two core modules and one essay of 4,000 words for each of the two options in addition to completing a 15,000-word research dissertation.
