Judaic Studies Annual Klingenstein Lecture
January 22, 2013, at 7 p.m.
Cynthia M. Baker, Bates College
Mildred Sainer Pavilion, 5313 Bay Shore Road
Cynthia M. Baker, author of Rebuilding the House of Israel: Architectures of Gender in Jewish Antiquity, will give the talk "The Essentially Ambiguous Jewess: Exploring Images of Jewish Women through the Centuries." Drawing on art and literature from the distant to the recent past, this talk will illuminate ways in which Jewish women have been imagined—and have imagined themselves—as significant points of contact between their own and other cultures. Baker is associate professor of Religious Studies at Bates College.
This annual Judaic Studies Lecture is sponsored by the Klingenstein Chair of Judaic Studies and the Jay Rudolph Endowment. The lecture is named for Selma Klingenstein who, along with her husband Paul, helped establish the Klingenstein Chair in Judaic Studies at New College in 2001.
