What do Woody Allen, Gertrude Stein, and Philip Roth all have in common?
JWST21/ENG53.42, Jewish American Literature (LIT/CI), S14 @ 2A, with Professor Klaus Milich
has a long and distinguished tradition. Although faculty positions in the field are relatively new at most American universities, Dartmouth established professorships starting in the 1960s. Some of the outstanding scholars in the field have taught here, including Jacob Neusner, Steven Katz, and Arthur Hertzberg. During the 1980s programs in the Hebrew language and literature were added, as well as an endowment for an annual visiting professorship.
Faculty and students are invited to a Workshop on the Orthodox Church of Romania, 1030-1940's, beginning with a presentation by the Romanian historian Ionut Biliuta, and with responses from Kevin Madigan (Harvard Divinity School), Kevin Spicer (Stonehill College), Victoria Barnett (US Holocaust Memorial Museum), and Susannah Heschel (Religion), on Wednesday, April 9, from 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm. Location: TBD
