The Jews as a Class: Between Race and Religion in the Civil War South

  • UNC Chapel Hill--Hill Hall, Moeser Auditorium (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

One of the most infamous instances of American antisemitism is General Ulysses S. Grant’s 1862 General Order Number 11, which banned “Jews, as a class” from the Department of Tennessee. This presentation will revisit this language of southern Jews “as a class” in historical context, showing how Jews and non-Jews alike struggled to categorize Jews in a region – and a nation – dominated by Protestant religion and a rigid racial binary.

Shari Rabin is assistant professor of Jewish studies and religion at Oberlin College.

The Navel of the Dream: Freud and/in Yiddish

This lecture explores the role of Yiddish in Freud’s writings and in the reception and translation of psychoanalysis. Was Yiddish, as the French psychoanalyst Max Kohn suggests, the “unconscious” of Freud’s German works? Were Yiddish translations a minor episode in the dispersion of psychoanalysis, or do they have a special place in this history, as the “lost originals” of Freud’s German writings?

Professor Naomi Seidman is the Chancellor Jackman Professor of the Arts in the Department for the Study of Religion and the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies at the University of Toronto, and a 2016 Guggenheim Fellow.

JFS Senior Connections: Letting Go and Moving On

Older adults often face unique challenges that affect their physical and mental health. You may confront negative stereotypes about aging that have been shown to directly affect health and function.  Holding on to resentments into old age can also result in mental and physical damage over time.    

The good news is that positive thinking skills and proactive strategies can offset the negative impact of ageism and help you let go of resentments.
