Nineteenth Annual Greenfield Summer Institute: Jews and Entertainment

As performers, writers, and business people, Jews have played crucial roles in the development of American entertainment. Few would disagree with this observation, but how to explain it is no simple matter. How have Jews shaped American film, television, music, and theater? Have they brought to bear distinct styles, perspectives, sensibilities, and issues of concern? Is there anything particularly Jewish in American popular culture? What can be learned about Jews and the United States through entertainment? A fantastic lineup of speakers will explore these and other questions in a variety of forums that will take us from Russia to the United States to Israel.

Sponsor: Sponsored by the Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies through the generosity of Larry and Roslyn Greenfield.
