Cíle předmětu
This course provides an advanced introduction to some of the major social and political issues in the modern history of the Jews in Central and Eastern Europe. It covers the period from the late eighteenth century, when debates over Jewish emancipation first began to acquire currency, through the restructuralization of organized Jewish life following the collapse of communism in the end of the twentieth century. The course provides an overview of the Jewish experience as a minority group, introducing main themes of modern Jewish history such as emancipation, Jewish politics, religious reform, antisemitism, Hebrew and Yiddish literature. Geographical framework of the course includes present day Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania, occasional references will be made to Israel and the USA. Students will gain an appreciation of basic themes, events and ideas in modern Jewish history. The weekly class will be divided into three sections: lectures, students' presentations and discussions. Students are encouraged to use primary documents in their presentations (from The Jew in the Modern World: A Documentary History) to illustrate their arguments.
