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.
