The Country and the City Rebooted

ACLA Seminar
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

In his 1973 classic, The Country and the City, Raymond Williams noted an ideological divide between the country and the city, stating: “powerful, hostile associations have also developed: on the city as a place of noise, worldliness and ambition; on the country as a place of backwardness, ignorance, limitation. A contrast between country and city, as fundamental ways of life, reaches back into classical times” (1). Williams seeks to bridge this divide by demonstrating the ways in which both country and city were bound together in a complex system of rural exploitation. Nevertheless, today the ideological divide between rural and urban is as strong as ever, as highlighted by the recent U.S. presidential election cycle.

Almost all branches of modern science and scholarship, including humanities, can trace their existence back to at least early modern times when Latin was a common medium of European erudition. Yet, present-day researchers in individual disciplines are largely unaware of the existence of early modern Latin scholarship related to their respective fields of study.

If the first major waves of popular interest in, philanthropic funding of, and scholarship on contemporary Jewish music and songwriters in the U.S. have finally receded, they've left a treasure in their wake. From Orthodox popular music and chazzanut, to jazz masters of the 1930s, to hipster oddities of the “new Jewish music” scene, to gypsy-punk klezmer cabaret bands and the Jewish identified art of Leonard Cohen and John Zorn, today’s audiences have access to a wealth of Jew-ish sounds and entertainments.
