Professor Scott Spector's new book, Modernism without Jews? German-Jewish Subjects and Histories, was published by the Indiana University Press this September.
The book argues for a return to the subjects of German-Jewish history as a way to understand them and their worlds. By engaging deeply with the individual as well as with the literary or philosophical character of the text, Spector offers a fresh view of the presumed contradictions, uncertainties, and paradoxes that underlie the project of Jewish participation in culture. Spector forges a new definition of what modernist creativity means in our understanding of German-Jewish culture.
