SJHS @ Home: Distinctive or Typical? Baltimore and the Writing of Urban Jewish History
In recent years scholars interested in Jews and the urban environment have brought new attention to one of the oldest forms of southern—and American—Jewish history, the local community history. One exemplar of this turn is the winner of the 2019 SJHS Book Prize, On Middle Ground: A History of the Jews of Baltimore. This discussion will feature its co-authors, Dr. Eric Goldstein and Dr. Deb Weiner, in conversation with Dr. Joshua Furman, a historian of Jewish Houston, about the challenges and possibilities of Jewish urban history in and beyond the South.

Digitally hosted by the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life.
