Drawing on the works of public intellectuals, writers, artists, playwrights, and 

filmmakers, we will explore the diversity of Jewish experience in Latin America and the Caribbean, paying particular attention to questions of belonging and otherness as Sephardi, Mizrahi, and Ashkenazi Jews made their lives and identities anew in the region. Lending a multi-faceted lens to Diaspora Jewry, the course offers new dimensions to understanding Jewish History and American Jewry.
