Jewish culture has always developed alongside and inside a wider, non-Jewish world; for all the diversity within and among Jewish communities, there is such a thing as Jewish culture and Jewish particularity. Grounded by these two pillars, mostly American scholars of literature and culture discuss such topics as whether Hellenistic Judaism is a myth or reality, whether Judaism is verbal or visual, and the migrations of Jewish meaning. Most of the 12 essays are from a conference at the University of Michigan at an undisclosed date. Distributed in the US by Society of Biblical Literature.
