Rethinking Secularism


Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies

Secularism in Question: Jews and Judaism in Modern Times has now been published in the Jewish Culture and Contexts series at Penn Press. Edited by Ari Joskowicz and Ethan Katz, the volume is the product of the 2009-2010 fellowship year, "Secularism and Its Discontents."

Bringing together scholars of history, religion, philosophy, and literature, the volume examines contemporary revivals of religion to illustrate how the categories of "religious" and "secular" have frequently proven far more permeable than fixed.

Contributors include Michal Ben-Horin, Aryeh Edrei, Jonathan Mark Gribetz, Ari Joskowicz, Ethan Katz, Eva Lezzi, Vivian Liska, Rachel Manekin, David Myers, Amnon Raz-Krakotzkin, Andrea Schatz, Christophe Schulte, Daniel B. Schwartz, Galili Shahar, Scott Ury.
