Prophets of the Past: Interpreters of Jewish History

Georgetown University

Dates: Tuesday, October 12, 2010
Time: 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Speaker: Dr. Michael Brenner

Professor Michael Brenner is Chair of Jewish History and Culture at the University of Munich in Germany.

Professor Michael Brenner examines in depth how modern Jewish historians have interpreted Jewish history, beginning with nineteenth-century Germany. History proved to be a uniquely powerful weapon for modern Jewish scholars during a period when they had no nation or army to fight for their ideological and political objectives, whether the goal was Jewish emancipation, diasporic autonomy or the creation of a Jewish state.
