Fall 2018 Events

Upcoming Events

Event: New Jersey Working Group on Holocaust Research Meeting
Date: Friday, October 12

The New Jersey Working Group on Holocaust Research is a new initiative funded by the American Academy for Jewish Research, the College of Saint Elizabeth Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education, and Drew University's Center for Holocaust/Genocide Study. This interdisciplinary working group encourages participation from junior and senior scholars, along with advanced graduate students, who are engaged in all disciplines and fields within Holocaust Studies, including those working on the rise of nationalism and antisemitism. The conveners also seek scholars researching other genocides to offer comparative theoretical frameworks.

Participation in this working group is by invitation only. This meeting is closed to the public.


Event: Free Film Screening
Date: Thursday, October 18, 6:00pm
Location: Flex Classrooms, Annunciation Center

More information about the film screening will be available soon.

Event: Kristallnacht Commemoration

Location: Dolan Performance Hall, Annunciation Center
Keynote Lecture: Professor Noah Isenberg, The New School
"Such Much?" Casablanca, Hitler's Refugees, and the Hollywood Screen

Although the legendary, award-winning Hollywood picture Casablanca (1942) has been called "everyone's favorite émigré film," in the memorable formulation by Thomas Elsaesser, rarely is it discussed in this vein.

Drawing on extensive research undertaken for his book We'll Always Have Casablanca: The Life, Legend, and Afterlife of Hollywood's Most Beloved Movie (W.W. Norton, 2017), Noah Isenberg seeks to shed new light on this often-neglected aspect – refocusing attention on the dozens of refugees at work on both sides of the camera; on the strangely evocative if also veiled commentary on historical events; and on the furtive references to Jews and other targets of Nazi persecution.

One of the all-time most cherished love stories and wartime dramas of the studio era may also be seen as one of the earliest and most successful feature films to address the menace of National Socialism, the flight of European refugees, and the personal stories embodied in even the most minor characters portrayed on screen.

This event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
