This volume represents and extends the work of a fall 1997 University of California Humanities Research Institute (UCHRI) residential research group on Jewish identity in the diaspora. The group was multidisciplinary; members represented anthropology, art history, comparative literature, cultural studies, German, history, philosophy, political theory, and sociology. General agreement within the group was rare, but the disagreements proved to be a source of great stimulation. This introductory chapter is something of a roadmap of the terrain covered by the subsequent chapters. It begins with brief discussions of the diaspora/exile distinction and the concept of Jewish identity.
