Jonathan Karp, associate professor of history and chair of Judaic Studies, has tackled a seldom-touched subject – a stereotype of Jewish culture – tracing the role of Jews in the economy from the mid-17th to mid-19th century.
Mike Hudak '75, PhD '86 wrote Western Turf Wars: The Politics of Public Lands Ranching (Biome Books, 2007).
Laurie (Levine) Graff '76 wrote The Shiksa Syndrome (Broadway, 2008), a book about a Jewish girl who pretends to be a shiksa (non-Jewish woman) to catch a Jewish guy. Laurie also wrote You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs (2004) and Looking for Mr. Goodfrog (2006).
Jeffery Lyle Segal, MA '79 is co-producer and co-author of book, music and lyrics for I Come for Love, a musical presented last fall at the New York Musical Theater Festival. It’s the story of an alien girl in search of romance who crashes her flying saucer at Roswell, N.M., in 1949, and falls for a reporter who thinks she’s a nice, down-to-Earth girl.
