Professor Lang Participates in Seminar: Jewish Responses to the Holocaust: Teaching the Victims’ Perspective
Weissman School of Arts and Sciences English professor Jessica Lang was selected as a participant in the 2010 Silberman Seminar for university faculty, held June 2-15 at The Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM).
"The seminars are designed to strengthen teaching about the Holocaust at American institutions. Three seminars are organized each year to assist faculty members who are teaching or preparing university-level courses on the Holocaust by providing them with resource materials, model presentations on key issues, and suggested approaches for teaching difficult topics. The seminars focus on a specific academic discipline or subject and are taught by leading figures in the field," according to the museum's website.
