Judith Ruderman

Join Jewish Life at Duke and the Center for Jewish Studies as we welcome Judith Ruderman for a reading from her new book, Passing Fancies. In this book, Ruderman takes on the fraught question of who passes for Jewish in American literature and culture.
Ruderman retired as Vice Provost for Academic and Administrative Services at Duke University in 2009, and currently serves as a Visiting Scholar of English. She is the winner of the 2017 Harry T. Moore Award for lifetime contributions to D.H. Lawrence studies, and author of four previous books, including Race and Identity in D.H. Lawrence: Indians, Gypsies, and Jews.
