"Time Embodied: On Gender and Temporality in Rabbinic Culture" - keynote lecture by Professor Charlotte Fonrobert

JSGSA conference keynote lecture by Charlotte Fonrobert.

_____

The inaugural conference of the Jewish Studies Graduate Student Association at Indiana University Bloomington, sponsored by the Robert A. and Sandra S. Borns Jewish Studies Program, “Jews in Image and Imagination: Body, Gender, and Sexuality in Representation” will explore the representational relationship between Jews and sexuality, Jews and gender, Jews and physicality, and Jews and the body. How have Jews imagined themselves throughout history and how do they imagine themselves today? Or, how do others imagine Jews or even “the Jew”? The conference is designed to encompass a range of academic subjects, while producing a sustained and focused debate about how Jews have appeared in literary and artistic works.

Dr. Charlotte E. Fonrobert, Professor of Religion at Stanford University, will deliver the keynote address on Thursday, February 7th . Her research on sexuality in Talmudic literature will serve at the centerpiece of graduate panel discussions.
