HistoryHIS 196M Shtetl: Eastern European Jewish Life

For several centuries, the shtetl functioned as the center of Jewish life in Eastern Europe. Alternately mythologized and pathologized, the shtetl continues to exist as an imaginary space that defines and distorts the historical image of Eastern European Jewish life. Students cannot receive credit for this course and course 257.


Prerequisite(s): satisfaction of the Entry Level Writing and Composition requirements, HIS 100 (for history majors), and two additional upper-division history courses. Enrollment is restricted to junior and senior history and Jewish studies majors.
