Films often reflect the times during which they are created and they can provide a most incisive window into American Jewish life over the last century.
There is growing recognition that feature films are an important primary source for the study of contemporary life. Historian Eric Goldman, whose new book is The American Jewish Story Through Cinema (University of Texas Press; April 15, 2013), examines Jewish contributions to film as creators, producers and subjects and takes a look at how American filmmakers created and packaged their own unique concept of the Jewish people. Goldman is adjunct associate professor of cinema at Yeshiva University and The Jewish Theological Seminary, president of Ergo Media, a distributor specializing in Jewish, Yiddish and Israeli film and film reviewer for New Jersey’s The Jewish Standard.
There will be a dessert reception following the program.
The speaker will be signing copies of his book, The American Jewish Story through Cinema.
