Curb Your Enthusiasm: Interfaith Romance, Gender, and Popular Culture

March 22, 2015 Brockton

From Abie’s Irish Rose in 1922 to Orange is the New Black in 2013 interfaith romances between Jewish men and Christian women have been ubiquitous on the stage and screen. Which depictions imitate life and which portrayals reinforce stereotypes? What happens when successful men like Ben Stiller and Steven Spielberg meet the loves of their lives? Join author-educator Keren R. McGinity for a program of entertainment, history, and culture, as she weaves together Sex in the City with real men’s life experiences to reveal how love across religious lines reinforces myths about “shiksappeal” as Jewish men negotiate what it means to be a husband and father in America.
