Juden in der Wiener Kultur. Zur (Un-)Angemessenheit dichotomer Kategorisierungen

Juden in der Wiener Kultur. Zur (Un-)Angemessenheit dichotomer Kategorisierungen Abstract The article questions dichotomous differentiations, such as Jews vs. Non-Jews, Eastern vs. Western Jews, etc. Rather than clearly identifiable groups, they represent categorizations whose boundaries are fluid. Affiliations change according to the context in which they are brought to expression, and thus articulate themselves in many and varying ways. From this conceptual framework arises the thesis that Jews and non-Jews in finde- siècle Vienna both participated in the shaping of society. Jews did not solely adapt to its culture, but took part in its constitution. Examples to confirm this thesis are taken from the synagogue service, the Yiddish theatre, and popular culture at the turn of the century. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aschkenas de Gruyter

Abstract

Abstract The article questions dichotomous differentiations, such as Jews vs. Non-Jews, Eastern vs. Western Jews, etc. Rather than clearly identifiable groups, they represent categorizations whose boundaries are fluid. Affiliations change according to the context in which they are brought to expression, and thus articulate themselves in many and varying ways. From this conceptual framework arises the thesis that Jews and non-Jews in finde- siècle Vienna both participated in the shaping of society. Jews did not solely adapt to its culture, but took part in its constitution. Examples to confirm this thesis are taken from the synagogue service, the Yiddish theatre, and popular culture at the turn of the century.
