About the Author
Jonathan Branfman is the Eli Reinhard Postdoctoral Fellow in Jewish Studies at Stanford University.
"Deftly teases out the history and persistence of Jewish stereotypes while showing how those stereotypes have adapted to an era of multiculturalism. As U.S. culture grapples with the persistence of antisemitism, Millennial Jewish Stars is essential to understanding the multifaceted histories and realities of Jewishness in pop culture and celebrity culture today."-- "Russell Meeuf, author of Rebellious Bodies: Stardom, Citizenship, and the New Body Politics"
"Branfman takes the seemingly unserious--celebrity, entertainment, humor--to tackle serious questions of Jewishness, race, and sexuality in North America. Millennial Jewish Stars is no hot-take: students and scholars alike will appreciate his astute eye and careful analysis of Jewish celebrities and their public performances."-- "Sarah Imhoff, author of Masculinity and the Making of American Judaism"
"An incisive, cogent, and beautifully thought-provoking exploration of the complex relationships among white supremacy, antisemitism, queerness, US racial politics, masculinity, and popular culture. Expertly unpacks racial antisemitism and the relationship between Jewish racial difference and queer masculinities by centering performances from pop culture artists such as rappers Drake and Lil' Dicky and actors Seth Rogen and Zac Efron. With analytical heft and poignant clarity, Branfman compels us to reconsider what we think we know about race in America."-- "Treva B. Lindsey, author of America, Goddam: Violence, Black Women, and the Struggle for Justice"
