Modern Jewish Popular Literatures: Beyond the U.S.

Recent investigations into American Jewish popular literature and culture
have highlighted both the ³inside² interest of American Jews to subvert or
recontextualize Jewish identity, and the ³outside² interest of the culture
industries in exploiting yet another profitable brand of urban youth
culture.

But less explored are the Jewish popular literatures that developed in
Eastern and Western Europe, in Israel and the Middle East, and among
Orthodox as well as secular Jews upon their entrance into modernity. Their
extensive history offers a much-needed transnational context for the
contemporary American Jewish scene.

RICO, and I write to invite you to participate and send us YOUR
WONDERFUL PROPOSALS!!! The event is based at the Humanities Department,
University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez.
 
About one year ago, the UPR system included alternative sexualities in
its non-discriminatory statute, and PR sodomy laws (never quite

effervescence therein. And so this Colloquium comes at a perfect time

The call is very open, with topics like alternative sexualities and
