March 7, 7pm
Free and open to the public.
Co-presented by the Tang Teaching Museum and Skidmore College’s Jacob Perlow Event Series
This conversation brings together scholar Paul Mendes-Flohr, the Dorothy Grant Maclear Professor of Modern Jewish History and Thought at the University of Chicago Divinity School; archaeologist Jodi Magness, the Kenan Distinguished Professor for Teaching Excellence in Early Judaism at UNC-Chapel Hill; and international consultant Michael Ben-Eli, founder of the Sustainability Laboratory. Together they will lead a public conversation about “this place” through three interrelated lenses: the identities and communities that inhabit the land, understanding the land through its archaeology, and the complex environmental issues around sustaining the land.
Co-presented by the Tang Teaching Museum and Skidmore College’s Jacob Perlow Event Series.
This event, which is part of the exhibition This Place, is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception.
