Transcultural Jewishness: The Jew in Diasporic and Postcolonial Literature
and Theory

Co-chairs: Sarah Phillips Casteel and Jennifer Glaser

Following Paul Gilroy's and Jonathan Boyarin's early calls for a dialogue
between Jewish studies and postcolonial studies as well as Bryan Cheyette's
important work on Jewishness and race, scholars have begun to situate
Jewishness in interethnic contexts that move beyond the standard
articulations of black/Jewish relations.
