Critical Race Theory and the Atlantic Jewish World: Pathways and Roadblocks
Join the Herbert D. Katz Center for the "Critical Race Studies" Series. RSVP is required for each virtual session.
Focusing on the Dutch colony of Suriname, home to the largest Jewish community of the Americas, this talk centers race as the most compelling way to understand this Jewish population, but also explores the shortcomings of such an approach.
