Comet Calendar

Please mark your calendars for our first Graduate Student Speaker Series event of the 21-22 academic year. This year we feature graduate students who have recently had their dissertation proposals approved by the Graduate Studies Committee. Congratulations to graduate students who have passed this important milestone!

Our first graduate student presentation will be given by Philip Barber, PhD student in Humanities and a research assistant with the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies, where he was twice awarded the Mike Jacobs Fellowship in Holocaust Studies. His field exams covered Holocaust Literature, anti-Semitism, and the history of race in philosophy. In his dissertation, he explores what he considers to be the theological motif underlying the chronicle of Ka-Tzetnik 135633.

The title of his presentation is: Untangling the Enigma of Ka-Tzetnik’s Chronicle: “The Incineration and Resurrection of the Divine Spark” as Defining Theme

Philip will be introduced by his dissertation supervisor, Dr. David Patterson.

This hybrid event will take place in-person in JO 4.122 and on Teams. Join the Teams meeting on October 28 by clicking here at 12 p.m. on the day of the event.

All are welcome to join.
