As Jewishness has historically lay at the nexus of race and religion, this Osgoode Colloquium on Law, Religion and Social Thought talk by Professor Sarah Imhoff explores historical moments when Jewish men stood accused of high-profile crimes. It also explores what happens when conceits about a gentle Jewish manhood collide with the facts of crimes, and what that tells us about the power and endurance of images of gender, religion, and crime in the cultural imaginary.
