JWST 254 - Judaism and the Body

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
What does it mean to have a body? How do humans make sense of the fact that bodies differ from one another and change over time? This course will consider a range of issues related to gender, well-being, and the human condition, focusing on the particular case of Jews and Judaism. Ranging from the Hebrew Bible to the contemporary period, we will discuss how Jewish bodies have been understood within the overlapping contexts of rabbinic discourse, diverse Jewish communities, and the broader societies in which Jews have lived.
This course is cross-listed with RELG 254


This course is appropriate for new students.
