Special student discussion and dinner with visiting scholars Marianne Hirsch and Leo Spitzer about what school photos taken in the 19th and 20th century can tell us about efforts to assimilate or “civilize” Jews, Indians, and Blacks. Join us for this interactive conversation/workshop with these world-renown scholars. The event is co-sponsored by the Jewish Studies Student Committee and the American Indian Student Commission.
