Jewish Studies Capstone Course SPRING 2016
Wednesday, 3:00-5:30pm / Instructor: Gabrielle A. Berlinger, Ph.D.
What makes an object “Jewish”? How do we think about, create, repurpose, and exhibit “Jewish” objects in contemporary life—on the body, in museums, in public culture, in religious spaces, and in the home? This seminar examines the material life of Jewish America with site visits, guest speakers, and museum projects – join us! JWST697spring16.poster
The Capstone Course JWST 697/RELI 697 is required for those pursuing the B.A. in Religious Studies with a concentration in Jewish Studies and is also open to non-major students.
