Description:

Colonialism, Empire, and Race: The Politics of Modern Jewish-Christian Relations

 

Dr. Heschel’s lecture is part of a three-year Ethics/Religion and Society series on “Justice, Tolerance and Diversity.”  The purpose of the series is to debate the meanings of justice, tolerance and diversity, as well as their relationship to each other.

 

Susannah Heschel is the Eli Black Professor of Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College. Her scholarship focuses on Jewish-Christian relations in Germany during the 19th and 20th centuries, the history of biblical scholarship, and the history of anti-Semitism. Her numerous publications include Abraham Geiger and the Jewish Jesus (University of Chicago Press), which won a National Jewish Book Award and Germany's Geiger Prize. Between 1999 and 2008 she served on the Academic Advisory Committee of the Research Center of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
