“Now You Are My Home”: European Jewish Brides in the U.S., Canada, and Britain
This lecture, presented by Associate Professor Robin Judd of Ohio State University, will follow European and North African Jewish women who, after marrying British, U.S., and Canadian soldiers, followed their military spouses to their husbands’ home countries. How were these women received by the families of their new husbands? By the U.S., Canadian, and British Jewish communities? What did their processes of acculturation look like? “Now You Are My Home” will tell a compelling transnational story of politics, family, desire, identity, and community in the wake of extraordinary violence and trauma.
