Crossing Borders, Claiming a Nation: A History of Argentine Jewish Women, 1880-1955 (Book) [show prizes]
Title: Crossing Borders, Claiming a Nation: A History of Argentine Jewish Women, 1880-1955
Author: Sandra McGee Deutsch
Editor: none
Abstract: This book explains the interaction of Argentine Jewish women, as insiders and outsiders, with f state formation, transnationalism, and cultural, political, ethnic, and gender borders. As agricultural pioneers and film stars, teachers and human rights activists, mothers and physicians, Argentine Jewish women led wide-ranging and multifaceted lives. Their involvement in their communities and society, including building libraries, philanthropies, and secular schools, as well as opposing fascism in the 1930s and 1940s, contributed to a changing Argentina. Despite their marginalization as women and members of an ethnic minority, Argentine Jewish women formed communal bonds, carved out their own spaces, tried to create a more just social order, and helped shape the nation's pluralistic culture.

"Changing the Landscape: The Study of Argentine Jewish Women and New Historical Vistas" (Article)
Title: "Changing the Landscape: The Study of Argentine Jewish Women and New Historical Vistas"
Author: Sandra McGee Deutsch
Abstract: Putting women and their concerns at the center of our inquiry changes the landscape. The daily routines and education of Eastern European women in the farming communities; Zionism and philanthropy among Eastern European and Mediterranean women; and the participation of Eastern European women in the Communist Party and the Junta de la Victoria in Argentina illustrate this point well. Placing these examples at the center changes the landscape of the history of Argentina, Jewish Argentines, and Argentine women both metaphorically and spacially.
