THE MLA AND JEWISH LITERATURE: “English departments that would never allow themselves to be without experts in the literatures of many racial and ethnic groups in the United States don’t think twice about failing to have a knowledge base in American Jewish literature. Further, the view of many here is that discussions about multicultural literature that ought to include Jewish writers simply don’t.”

Plus this: “Jewishness has been associated with Israel, white privilege, colonialism and racism.” Just more of the way in which anti-semitism has been assimilated to “progressivism.”
