Pincus Lecture: Reflections on Writing Queer Jewish History (Dickinson College)
March 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join the Asbell Center for their annual Pincus Lecture with Noam Sienna, author of A Rainbow Thread: An Anthology of Queer Jewish Texts From the First Century to 1969. His book spans almost two millennia and contains translations from more than a dozen languages and collects more than a hundred sources on the intersection of Jewish and Queer identities.
In his words, “For many queer Jews, Jewish tradition seems like a rich tapestry which at best ignores them and at worst rejects them entirely. In reality, queerness and queer Judaism have been a constant subplot of Jewish history, if only we care to look.”
Please RSVP for the dinner at 6 p.m. and lecture at 7 p.m. We welcome all people regardless of faith tradition.
