MEN OF VALOR AND ANXIETY. POLISH-JEWISH MASCULINITIES AND THE CHALLENGE OF MODERNITY with MARIUSZ KALCZEWIAK
Mariusz Kalczewiak (University of Potsdam/ University of Warsaw) is a social and cultural historian of modern Eastern Europe and Latin America and Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the USC’s Max Kade Institute.
In his talk Mariusz will show how in the early twentieth century Polish-Jewish men adopted and adapted gender models and gender practices and how they evaluated and sometimes reshaped themselves as men and as Polish Jews. Poland was in that era the home of the largest European Jewish diaspora and served as the epicenter for the social and cultural processes that defined East European Jewry. Rethinking existing paradigms about Jewish masculinities, Mariusz will show how average Jewish men framed their masculinities in yeshivot, military, university fraternities or even circus arenas.
