In this collection of new essays, Sander Gilman muses on Jewish memory and representation throughout the twentieth-century. Bringing together the worlds of literature, medicine, and popular culture in his characteristic ways, Gilman looks at new, post-diasporic ways of understanding the limits of Jewish identity. Topics include the development of the genre of Holocaust comedy, the imagination of the relationship of the body, disease, and identity, and the place of Jews in today's multicultural society.

From the Inside Flap:

"Eschewing a traditional center-periphery approach to Jewish history, Gilman (re)considers the Jews, even those in Israel, as a frontier people, and the culture that they produce as a reaction to and product of the decentered space that they inhabit. Through an analysis of novels and films, Gilman suggestively explores the ways in which Jews have used the creative arts to explore ad shape new expressions of Jewish identity. Sander Gilman's latest volume positively sparkles with new, thought-provoking ideas."
--John Efron, Koret Chair in Jweish History, University of California-Berkeley, and author of Medicine and the German Jews: A History

"This fascinating collection of linked essays imagines a time, after Freud, when we will all be educated to 'move freely across frontiers.' Assuming his familiar guise as an eclectic and mischievous bricoleur, Sander Gilman here adds significantly to his outstanding corpus. New intellectual frontiers are created around film comedies and the Shoah; smoking Jews; Proust; Kafka; identitarianism; and Jews and multiculturalism. In rightly questioning a conservative multiculturalism and the center/periphery model of diasporic studies, the collection confirms Gilman's abiding role as a provocative and pioneering cultural critic."
--Bryan Cheyette, professor of twentieth-century literature, University of Southampton, and author of Constructions of "the Jew" in English Literature and Society
