    This course will examine various trends in Jewish historical scholarship, focusing on the theme of the Jewish confrontation with modernity—especially politics and culture.  We will approach the subject matter by looking at the emergence of historical consciousness among modern Jews and then fan out to look at newer developments, adopting a more thematic rather than traditional, geographic approach.
