Review Crafting Jewishness adds much to our understanding of antisemitism. For medieval historians like me, the book provides a unique insight into vernacular literature, raising new ideas about its reception. For those readers of H-Judaic who study the long history of racialized images of Jews, it will give new and complex insights into its birth." - H-Judaic "Working at the intersection of medieval, postcolonial, and Judaic studies, Krummel has createda wide-ranging and interdisciplinary work of scholarship that re-evaluates how anti-Judaism works. Stressing the absence of the Jews even when physically present (transformed into a figure, a symbol, a deicidal monster), the book traces Jewish representation by Christians and (powerfully) by Jews living amongst Christians. Even when expelled from the island in 1290, the Jews continued to haunt, so integral were they to medieval Christian identities. Crafting Jewishness in Medieval England is a carefully researched, disquieting, vigorously argued, and profound book." - Jeffrey J. Cohen, Professor of English and Director of the Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute, George Washington University "In Crafting Jewishness in Medieval England, Krummel explores the varied and arresting medieval pre-histories of modern racism and antisemitism. Krummel's lively, eloquent and wide-ranging exploration of the Jews' 'virtual presence' in medieval English culture asks timely and challenging questions about religious violence and group identity. Krummel's book not only helps us to think about the vanished English Jews, expelled in 1290, but also suggests provocative and innovative ways of recovering and interpreting the haunting, multiple presences the Jews continued to play in the English, Christian imagination." - Anthony Bale, Reader in Medieval Studies, Birkbeck College, University of London About the Author Miriamne Ara Krummel is an Associate Professor of English Literature at the University of Dayton. Her essays have appeared in Exemplaria, Midstream, Shofar, and Texas Studies in Literature and Language.
