Movie-Made Jews

Helene Meyers

Movie-Made Jews focuses on American Jewish cinematic tradition. This tradition includes fiction and documentary films that make Jews through antisemitism, Holocaust indirection, and discontent with assimilation, and through unapologetic assertion of Jewishness, queerness, and alliances across race and religion. While it’s a truism that Jews make movies, this book demonstrates how movies make Jews.

Unsettling

Eli Bromberg

Unsettling illustrates how Jewish community protective politics impacted representations of white male Jewish masculinity in the 1990s.
