An Umbrella Full of Holes: A History of Jewish Humor

From 10 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesdays, June 30 through July 21. Why are the Jews so funny? What is unique about Jewish humor? Why are so many comedians, satirical novelists, and film directors Jewish? In this short course, we will seek to answer these questions by tracing the history of Jewish humor from the nineteenth century to the present, following the migration of Jewish humor across the European continent to America (and Israel), where the Jewish funnyman and funnywoman have transformed the cultural landscape. We will also look at how the Jews have used laughter as both a coping mechanism and an instrument of self-defense against pogroms, forced migrations, and even the Holocaust. Taught by Avinoam J. Patt, Ph.D, Doris and Simon Konover Chair of Judaic Studies; Director, Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life at the University of Connecticut.

James Joyce's Ulysses (REMOTE)

Since its publication in 1922, “Ulysses” has often been called the greatest novel of the 20th century.

This course will guide readers through Ulysses' narrative innovations, its debts to Homer and Shakespeare, its historical and biographical contexts, and its dazzling odyssey of styles. Along the way, special emphasis will be paid to the more accessible pleasures of this landmark novel: its vivid characters, its humor, its moving evocations of love and grief, and its climactic affirmation of life itself.

Orthodox-Feminism: Conflict or Coexistence? (REMOTE)

The coexistence of Orthodoxy and feminism sounds like an oxymoron to many. However, in today’s world, there is a vibrant movement to develop the social and religious roles of women within Orthodox communities. Since the 1970s, many Orthodox women exposed to feminism and gender equality have been inspired to remain within the boundaries of Orthodoxy while working to develop a more egalitarian approach. In response, Jewish communities around the world have begun to create new and renewed space for observant women to practice rituals once reserved only for men. From 10 to 11:30 a.m. Thursdays, Aug. 6-27. Visit case.edu/lifelonglearning/courses/courses-subject/jewish-studies/orthodox-feminism-conflict-or-coexistence-remote.
