Spring Semester 2015 (Space, Place, Things, and Bodies)


My goings on this semester at Syracuse University this semester. Jewish Studies and contemporary Jewish thought & philosophy can look like this:

–Jewish Studies Seminar: Kabbalah and Mystical Architecture (looking at space and place in the Zohar: creation, circumcision, Tabernacle) (Scholem, Wolfson, Tishby, Bachelard, Heidegger, Yi Fu Tuan)

–Graduate Seminar: American Judaism (space, place, and the American Jewish imaginaire) (Cahan, Kazin, Kaplan, Heschel, Bugs Bunny, Herberg, Soloveitchik)

–Talmud reading group: Ketubot (starting at the beginning) (reading for bodies)

–Theory reading group with Gail Hamner: Eugenie Brinkema, The Forms of Affect (reading for form in affect and film theory)
