Distinguished Faculty Lecture
Please note: The location of this lecture has been changed to Jewett Auditorium.
Drawing from thousands of letters rescued at the end of World War II, in “Jewish Voices: Muslim Lands,” Frances Malino will explore the lives of Jewish women teaching in a network of schools extending from Tetuan in Morocco to Teheran in Iran. Her presentation will begin with film clips from the inauguration of the chair in Jewish Studies at Wellesley College in 1990 and conclude, using satellite imagery, immersive panoramas, and architectural reconstructions, with a virtual tour of Jewish sites in North Africa and the Middle East.
Lunch will be available at noon in the Jewett Foyer, followed by the lecture at 12:30 p.m. in Jewett Auditorium. The lecture will also be livestreamed at wellesley.edu/live.
This event is free and no-preregistration is required. The lunch menu will be suitable for those observing Passover.
