This course focuses on how religion, ethnicity, and race contributed to maintaining group separatism at some early points in history and intersected to create a unified national identity at others. It will also explore the relationship between group continuity and individual identity development. Using gender as a primary category of analysis and Jews as a case study, it will examine how romantic relationships between people with different ethno-religious backgrounds were portrayed in literature and film during the rising culture of individualism in America. The course is designed to explain how large issues such as anti-Semitism, segregation, sexism and identity politics influence life on both national and personal levels. We will look at how contextual factors such as immigration trends, World Wars, and the civil rights, feminist, and fatherhood movements influenced the meaning of love across religious, ethnic, and racial lines.
