Description:

Dr. Jennifer Caplan, Towson University
Monday April 29, 11:00 am

"What's Jewish about Jewish Humor"

This talk interrogates the idea that "cultural Judaism" and "religious Judaism" are separate and potentially incommensurate concepts. Caplan argues that not only are those things often dismissed as "cultural" actually quite religious, but also that contemporary Jews have taken their religious cues from popular culture.
