From Left to Right: Lucy S. Dawidowicz, the NY Intellectuals, & the Politics of Jewish History

March 8 , 2:00 pm

In honor of International Womens Day, the AJHS and YIVO are delighted to host a panel discussion of Nancy Sinkoff’s new book, From Left to Right: Lucy S. Dawidowicz, the New York Intellectuals, and the Politics of Jewish History, the first comprehensive biography of a pioneer historian in the field of Holocaust Studies. Dawidowicz emerged from an interwar immigrant Yiddishist background to become a major Jewish public intellectual in postwar American life.

Nancy Sinkoff is Associate Professor of Jewish Studies and History at Rutgers University and additional panelists include Adam Kirsch, author of Why Trilling Matters, of Columbia University’s Center for American Studies, Francine Klagsbrun, author of more than a dozen books including Lioness: Golda Meir and The Nation of Israel, and Annie Polland, co-author, with Daniel Soyer of Emerging Metropolis: New York Jews in the Era of Immigration.
