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.

Dominic Janes

I am currently working on an edited volume of papers provisionally
titled 'Shopping for Jesus!: Religion as Commodity'. The aim of this is
to explore the connections between belief, its presentation, and the
processes by which it is sold and consumed. I want to think about the
way in which religion operates in a market culture and the degree to
which one can use the notions of branding, advertising and marketing to
understand missionary and revival activities. Conversely, one might ask
whether religious methods of self-promotion underlay the development of
some of the techniques of private enterprise. I am interested in papers
that explore such themes from a range of locations in time, space and
