Portrayal of Jewish Identity at Chicago's World's Fairs in 1893 and 1933

Abstract

My research explores the way that Jewish identity was portrayed at the 1893 and 1933 Chicago World's Fairs. It hopes to show that the nature of displaying Jewish identity was contingent on the forces of assimilation and antisemitism. This is an extremely rough idea of what my research will yield... I plan on changing this abstract as my paper forms.
