Jewish Identity in Question: The Legacy of Irene Némirovsky at Lecture Hall

March 27, 2017 from 7pm to 8:15pm
Talk by Susan Rubin SuleimanIrène Némirovsky (1903-1942) was a Russian Jewish immigrant to France who achieved a brilliant career as a novelist during the 1930s but was deported as a “foreign Jew” in 1942 and died in Auschwitz.  Némirovsky’s tragic fate mirrors that of many assimilated Jews in Europe who had abandoned Jewish religious practice (sometimes to the point of conversion to Christianity), only to be treated like all other Jews by the Nazis.  Némirovsky’s portrayals of Jewish…See More

Teaching in a Time of Crisis: Lessons from Colonial Education at La Maison Française of NYU

April 4, 2017 from 7pm to 8:15pm
Lecture by Nicholas HarrisonIntroduction by Professor Cécile Bishop (Department of French, NYU)Postcolonial critics and teachers have often been drawn to heroic models of the public intellectual and of political intervention, of a sort advocated by Edward Said, among others. This raises questions about their own work in education, especially if they teach literature, an activity that may look like a luxury in a time of crisis. What is more, the tradition of literary pedagogy may appear…See More

Drawing’s Stepchild: How Lithography Transformed the Visual Universe of Nineteenth-Century France at Auditorium

March 21, 2017 from 7pm to 8pm
Book Event and Illustrated Lecture by Patricia MainardiLithography was invented around 1800 as a commercial technology, but artists soon adopted it. They favored its immediacy over more traditional engraving, and it soon became the preferred medium for caricature, landscape and scenes of modern life, producing many of the nineteenth-century’s most memorable images. In “Drawing’s Stepchild,” Patricia Mainardi surveys the development of this medium from the simple line drawings of the early…See More
