In the spring of 2010, the weekly newspaper Die Zeit featured a headline story titled "Typically Jewish" - and puncutated this headline with a question mark. While this headline speaks to the problems associated with identity as an analytical category, the reciprocal relationships between Jewish self-characterizations and outside attributions of Jewishness remain of key importance for understanding the history of German-Jewish relations. At the heart of this volume are fictional models of "Jewishness," distinctions between different Jewish groups, as well as an examination of how internal Jewish discourse responded to anti-Semitic attributions - for example, during the time of the Weimar Republic.
European-Jewish Studies reflect the interdisciplinary network and competence of the new “Centre for Jewish Studies Berlin and Brandenburg”. The Centre gathers together the most important institutions working on Jewish studies in the region – including the relevant universities and establishments in Berlin and Potsdam. The interdisciplinary character of the series places particular emphasis on the way in which history, the humanities and cultural science approach the subject, as well as on fundamental intellectual, political and religious questions that inspire Jewish life and thinking today, and have influenced it in the past. The CONTRIBUTIONS publish excellent monographs and anthologies on the entire spectrum of themes from Jewish studies. The series is peer-reviewed.
