Jewish Diaspora in Latin America & the Caribbean
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Since the 1970s, the Latin American Jewish Diaspora has been recognised as a unique phenomenon in diasporic studies, due to the development of new ways of thinking about internationalism and globalisation. Important works of the 1980s and 1990s established the critical role of Jews in Latin America. This collection moves the field forward by providing an interdisciplinary and comparative view of Jewish experiences through history, literature, painting, anthropology, poetry, sociology, and politics. The contributors have been impacted and shaped by their own or their families' memories of the Holocaust and the lived horrors of anti-Semitism in Latin America. The goal of the collection, each chapter in its own medium, is to explore and celebrate what it means to have and live memories of an individual and a collective Jewishness, and to uncover and recover the historical fragments of the Jewish experience in Latin America and the Caribbean.
