The fabled Argentine Jewish migratory route, from the shtetls of Eastern Europe to the agricultural settlements of the Pampas and then to the urban centers of the nation, is but one of the ways that Argentina’s Jewish history differs from, and thereby illuminates, other Jewish migration and assimilation narratives. This project aims to reconfigure Argentine literary, film, and cultural studies by arguing that the very project of modernity in Argentina relies on the paradox of Jewish otherness in, and identification with, the nation. It claims a central place for Jewish-authored texts and the deployment of Jewishness as an idea deeply infused with discourses of gender and sexuality in shaping Argentina’s cultural landscape. It challenges mainstream Jewish cultural studies to move beyond its current focus on the U.S., Europe, and Israel and takes the growing body of research both in Latin American Jewish studies and on gender, sexuality, and the modern nation in new directions.
