The Joan and Henry Katz Lecture in Judaic Studies, titled "Dueling Loyalties: Honor, Citizenship, and Antisemitism in Nineteenth Century Germany," featuring Dr. David Meola, Bert & Fanny Meisler Chair of History and Jewish Studies at the University of South Alabama, will be held on Wednesday, February 26, 2020, at 7:30 p.m., in the Aloysius Kelley Center Presentation Room.
In his lecture, Dr. Meola will juxtapose the Haber Affair of 1843 with the German-Jewish struggle for social integration, citizenship, and political equality. Dr. Meola’s research focuses on German-Jewish history during the nineteenth century, specifically looking at discussions about Jewish emancipation and Jewish religious reform in the German-language, non-Jewish press.
