Event description

Dr. Julia Watts Belser shows how ancient Jewish stories invite us to tangle with grief, confront vulnerability, and re-imagine our survival. In the 2020 Stroum Lectures in Jewish Studies, Dr. Julia Watts Belser will use classic rabbinic Jewish texts on political violence, imperialism, and disaster to grapple with pressing contemporary questions about climate change and environmental justice.

Bringing disability studies and activism into conversation with queer and feminist theory, these talks will examine how ancient Jewish stories invite us to tangle with grief, confront vulnerability, and re-imagine possibilities for communal survival.
