Join us for “Jews and Tango: A Cultural History of the Jews of Latin America.” 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. Taught by instructor Dr. Dalia Wassner.

This 10-week course will meet weekly on Thursdays from Nov. 7 to Jan. 30 (except for holidays).
