In Rhinestones, Religion, and the Republic: Fashioning Jewishness in France (Stanford University Press, 2014), Kimberly Arkin, assistant professor of anthropology at Boston University, explores the "racialization" of Jewishness among second- and third-generation North African Jewish adolescents in France. Through her interviews with students at three Jewish day schools and other members of the Paris Jewish community, she sheds light on the issue of multiculturalism in postcolonial France.
