Query: Recommendations for readings on Jews "passing" or not as gentile

I'm interested in readings that explore how visible Jewish identity (or stereotypical Jewish appearance) has been constructed in specific times and places, and experiences of "passing" or not passing as gentile in these contexts. I'd especially be interested in works that explore the ways in which both passing and not passing as gentile have been complex and not simply good or bad, as well as in works that describe other terminology or metaphors that have been used to explore the experience of Jews passing or not passing as gentiles. Thank you for any recommendations you may have.
