Martin-Buber-Vorlesung

Webinar

Martin-Buber-Vorlesung in jüdischer Geistesgeschichte und Philosophie
Webinar

Susannah Heschel (Dartmouth College)
»Racism in America: The Past and Future of Black-Jewish Relations«

Über den Vortrag (in englischer Sprache)
The meteoric rise of White Nationalism in the United States during the past three years has exposed the extent to which racism and antisemitism fester throughout the country. Scholars debate whether antisemitism is a species of racism (»hate«) or a separate phenomenon, and whether the same methods should be deployed against both. To what extent can and should Jews and African Americans join in combatting racism and antisemitism? What alliance between the two groups is possible and useful in the American context?
Many American Jews turn with pride to the active participation of Jews in the Civil Rights Movement (CRM), in which numerous rabbis and Jewish students took part in disproportionate number – and some died. The CRM alliances remain a powerful and inspiring memory, and many Jews long to revive the alliances of the 1960s. Yet the political context has changed and tensions between the two groups have increased sharply in recent decades for reasons that will be explained.
This lecture will speak about the complex relations between Jews and the CRM; how African American experience might revise Jewish historical understanding; and discuss several new scholarly analyses of anti-Black racism published in recent years.

Über die Rednerin
Prof. 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 The Aryan Jesus: Christian Theologians and the Bible in Nazi Germany (Princeton University Press). She has also taught at Southern Methodist University and Case Western Reserve University.

Fully Booked - American Literature at Goethe University

It's not a seminar. It's not a lecture, either. Fully Booked gives you the chance to get to know important works of American literature and discuss them with your peers. Finally a reason to read those books you've always meant to read - but didn't want to read only by yourself!

Each book will be introduced by a member of the American Studies department. Then the floor is open.

Memory Studies

Memory Studies is an international and interdisciplinary convergence field. It addresses – broadly speaking – the interplay of past and present in sociocultural contexts. Memory Studies is interested in the social shape of individual memory as well as in the collective generation of past, present, and future.
The Frankfurt Memory Studies Platform (FMSP) is an initiative of the Forschungszentrum für Historische Geisteswissenschaften (FzHG). It brings together people and projects from history, sociology, literature, arts, media studies, psychology, and other relevant disciplines in a dialogue about memory. It wants to shape the future of memory studies by developing and discussing new research questions and new methodologies.
The activities of the FMSP revolve around three main Research LinesTranscultural Memory, the Mediality of Memory, and Memory and Narrative.
