Event details
Details Lecture by Jessica Lang, Associate Professor of English at Baruch CUNY. She is the William Newman Director of the Jewish Studies Center.

Readability takes on different meanings for survivors and non-survivors. Survivors, eyewitnesses to the event, read the Holocaust in ways that are distinct from second generation survivors, the children of eyewitnesses. Through a range of first, second and third generation texts, Dr. Lang explores the changing relationship between reading and the Holocaust, between experience and history, between representation and trauma, in a setting that grows increasingly distant from the event it attempts to understand.

Lunch will be served. RSVP is requested.
