Gender, Language, and Religion: Socialization in a Hasidic Community in New York

How do Hasidic Jews in New York, part of the unexpected rise of fundamentalist movements globally, raise their children within strict religious boundaries in a city whose freedoms seem designed to destroy them? The proposed book focuses on how Hasidic women socialize their children, by and through language, to make a moral critique of “secular” society. Gender, language (Yiddish English) and the body are key to boundary building. With the world increasingly polarized by religious divides, my book contributes to humanistic conversations about social processes in religious communities and the responsibilities of scholars who write about them.
