Jewish journeys: from Philo to Hip Hop

Jordan, James, Kushner, Antony and Pearce, Sarah (eds.) (2010) Jewish journeys: from Philo to Hip Hop, Elstree, GB, Vallentine Mitchell, 384pp. (Parkes-Wiener Series on Jewish Studies).

Record type: Book


The journey is central to the Jewish experience and the construction of Jewish identities across time and place. Remarkably however it has received almost no scholarly attention. This multi-disciplinary collection, embracing approaches from Jewish studies, migration studies, cultural and historical studies, literary criticism, religious studies, ethnic and racial studies, geography and anthropology, opens up this important area. It deals with both physical and spiritual Jewish journeys, as well as cultural and intellectual ones, exploring the relationship between these different categories and demonstrating that it is indeed difficult to separate the process of movement involving mind and body. The essays contained herein are divided into four sections The Nature of Jewish Journeys, Body, Identity and Gender, Intellectual and Cultural Transmission, and Journeys and Families. The essays are scholarly, combining theoretical sophistication with detailed case studies, but they are all accessible to a wide readership reflecting the intrinsic interest of the subject matter. Source material varies from television, popular music, shipping records and testimony through to ancient religious texts. More generally it offers a path-breaking contribution to wider scholarship of migration and settlement.
