Stephen Shore, Mount Sodom, 2009, 41 ¾ x 50 ¾ inches, chromogenic print

This event is canceled due to winter weather.

Paul Mendes-Flohr, Jodi Magness, and Michael Ben-Eli in conversation, presented by the Tang Museum and the 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.
