    “Gender and the (Dis)Continuities of the European Jewish Enlightenment”
    Mar. 8th, 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
    Online Via Zoom
    The image of the New York Intellectuals, the Jewish public intellectuals who from their 1930s-nurtured anti-Stalinism became Cold Warriors in the 1950s and neoconservatives in the 1970s, is decidedly male. Yet one woman, the German-Jewish philosopher Hannah Arendt (1906-1975), is regularly invoked as a member of the group in its prewar heyday. Years later, another woman, Lucy S. Dawidowicz (1915-1990), the historian of Eastern European Jewry and of the Holocaust, became part of the group as it shifted politically toward the right and articulated a commitment to Jewish identity and survival. This lecture by Dr. Nancy Sinkoff, Professor of Jewish Studies and History, as well as the Academic Director of the Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life at Rutgers University, will juxtapose the lives of Arendt and Dawidowicz as two sides of a deep fissure that characterized the encounter of Ashkenazic Jewry with the modern world. Moreover, it will give voice to the female experience within that narrative. This event is co-sponsored by University of Delaware’s Jewish Studies Program, Department of History, Department of Women & Gender Studies, Department of Philosophy, and the European Studies Program. Registration is required for this online Zoom lecture; for more information and to register:

  • Olivia Blythe
    Coordinator for The Athena Centre for Women

    ​Olivia Blythe has been working at The Athena Centre for Women in Chios, Greece, the first all-female refugee facility established to respond to the refugee crisis in Greece. “I am one of the Centre’s coordinators as the main point of contact for the Centre’s clients; women and children refugees from Syria, Iraq, Morocco, Algeria, Cameroon, Congo and Afghanistan. I am also in charge of case management for the women and giving them referrals to other organizations on the island. Most of the refugees have experienced domestic violence or intimate partner violence, so getting them in contact with organizations that can provide counseling or organizations that can assist with relocating the women to a safe space has been my biggest focus.”
