Winter 2003 Cover

Winter 2003

This issue of MQR brings together academic essays, high-level journalism, personal narratives, fiction, poetry, and visual art responding to the transformations of Jewish experience in the United States during the last fifty years, and, speculatively, extending into the twenty-first century. It offers writings that respond to the multiplicity of representations, cultural forms, fashionings and refashionings, that have defined the experience of Jews in America and continue to compel debate. These include works by Jews and non-Jews that engage contemporary controversies in the fields of politics, sociocultural dynamics, the arts, and the relation of Jewish life in America to other historical periods, other geographical places.

Winter 2001 Cover

MQR 40:1 | Winter 2001

In this special issue of 292 pages, including a full-color portfolio of artwork, MQR sponsors an in-depth examination of how places—those we live in, those we visit, and those we dream about—affect our imaginations, and how we in turn make a home for ourselves in them, or stigmatize them as unworthy of our best values. Scholarly and personal essays focus on discrete places; fiction, poetry, and book reviews enhance the issue’s range and depth.
