Event Details

Dorota Glowacka, Professor of Humanities at the University of King’s College in Halifax, Canada, teaches critical theory, gender theory, Holocaust, and genocide studies. As a daughter of a Holocaust survivor, Professor Glowacka situates her research in the context of her family’s history. Join Professor Glowacka in a discussion on the comparative perspectives of Hitler’s destruction of Eastern European Jewish cultural and religious institutions, literature, and language, AND the frequent North American government efforts to remove Indigenous peoples from their land and systematically eliminate their language, culture, and religious practices. Learn the scope of the destruction of Eastern European Jewish culture and challenge how you remember the Holocaust as a singular experience in civilization.

This program is made possible by the Ilona Irene Rosenshein Holocaust Education Fund. With additional support from:

– CU Boulder Department of History
– CU Boulder Program in Jewish Studies
– CU Boulder Department of Women‘s and Gender Studies
– CU Boulder Center for Humanities and the Arts

The program will be followed by a reception with time for connection from 2 – 3 pm.
