Monday, February 13th, from 7:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M, the University of Hartford’s Maurice Greenberg Chair of Judaic Studies, Amy Weiss, will be collaborating with guest speaker Kirsten Fermaglich, a Professor of Jewish History from Michigan State University, to speak on the History of Antisemitism within the United States and descend into the present.

Kirsten Fermaglich brings forward a lot of credibility within Judaic studies, per a UNotes AD:

“Fermaglich is…the author of American Dreams and Nazi Nightmares: Early Holocaust Consciousness and Liberal America, 1957-1965 (Brandeis University Press, 2006) and the co-editor of the Norton Critical Edition of Betty Friedan, The Feminine Mystique (2013), with Lisa Fine.”

She also celebrated the release of her most recent Novel: “A Rosenberg By Any Other Name: A History of Jewish Name Changing in America,” in 2018.

The department of Judaic studies looks forward to engaging students in concepts such as Antisemitism and its effects on Jewish people within Political and Academic communities.

This event will be hosted via zoom and is open to all Students and Staff at UHART. To register for this event, use the following link:
