Lecture | Good Goy, Bad Goy: The Portrayal of Gentiles in Sketches from the London Yiddish Press (online)


Gentiles often appeared in the news sections of the London Yiddish press, and sometimes they also appeared in the regular "feuilleton" section in character sketches and fiction, stories and scenes from immigrant East-End Jewish life. Many of these portrayals were humorous local scenarios and imagined tales. This talk will look at a broad section of how and where Gentile characters appear and their relationship to the Jewish immigrant. Gentiles fix cars and do physical chores for the hapless immigrant. The wily immigrant hoodwinks the Gentile recruiting officers during the First World War. The stern Gentile gatekeeper of British government politics refuses access to the naive immigrant wanting to help. The paternalistic English police officer gives directions to parts of London never before visited by an East-End immigrant. A proud fascist blackshirt is confused when he sees his respected Jewish neighbors in a strident communist counter-demonstration. Yet the word goy is also used by Jews describing each other: skipping the bus fare, not sharing their Yiddish newspaper, or being rude to their neighbor. Speaker Vivi Lachs is a historian of London's Jewish East End, a Yiddishist, and a performer.

Talk | "U-boats": Evading the Nazi State (online)


Annelies and Marianne Bernstein were among the 1,700 German Jews in Berlin who survived the Holocaust by posing as non-Jews. Known as “U-boats” in the slang of their time, the sisters hid in plain sight with the help of ingenuity, grit, and luck. Find out how “the Steins” used their new names to secure ration cards and permits for travel and work and how they evaded the Nazi state surveillance apparatus, constantly on the move, frequently unhoused, and doubly vulnerable as women. The storyteller is Dr. Richard Lutjens, who will discuss the sisters’ story and the wider experience of Jews in hiding in Berlin. Dr. Richard Lutjens is an associate professor of Modern European History at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.

Three adolescents from Nairobi give body and voice to Dante, Virgil and Beatrice. Director: Marco Martinelli 43 min.

Book Discussion | Lucy by the Sea: The New Novel from Pulitzer Winner Elizabeth Strout


With her trademark spare, crystalline prose, Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout follows the indomitable heroine of My Name Is Lucy Barton through the early days of the pandemic in her new novel, Lucy by the Sea. Uprooted from her life in Manhattan, Lucy is bundled away to a small town in Maine by her ex-husband and on-again, off-again friend, William. The novel traces Lucy, William, and their complex past together in a house nestled near the moody, swirling sea, and captures the fear and struggles that come with isolation, as well as the hope, peace, and possibilities those long, quiet days can inspire. At the heart of the book are the deep human connections that unite us even when we're apart.

Discussion | Learn About African American History Through Photography


Join an annual event illuminating scholars whose work reflects the vision of bibliophile, historian, and activist Arturo Schomburg. January 24 marks the anniversary of the birth of Afro-Puerto Rican scholar Arturo Alfonso Schomburg (1874-1938), a writer, bibliophile, and historian dedicated to the collection and amplification of the artistic and academic work of people of African descent. Schomburg's seed collection to the Division of Negro Literature, History and Prints included more than 5,000 books, 3,000 manuscripts, 2,000 etchings and paintings, and several thousand pamphlets. Schomburg served as curator of the Division from 1932 until his death in 1938. This year's annual lecture will feature Dr. Deborah Willis, University Professor and Chair of the Department of Photography & Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University and author of The Black Civil War Soldier: A Visual History of Conflict and Citizenship. Through her pioneering work in photography and use of archival material, Dr. Willis's latest book explores the crucial role of photography in (re)telling and shaping African American narratives of the Civil War, pulling from a dynamic visual archive that has largely gone unacknowledged. Early in her career, Dr. Willis served as a photo specialist and then curator of the Photographs and Prints division at the Schomburg Center,1980-1992, under the tutelage of luminaries Jean Blackwell Hutson and Ruth Ann Stewart. Deborah Willis, Ph.D, conducts research examining photography's multifaceted histories, visual culture, the photographic history of Slavery and Emancipation, contemporary women photographers and beauty. Professor Willis received the NAACP Image Award in 2014 for her co-authored book (with Barbara Krauthamer) Envisioning Emancipation.

Book Discussion | The Last Days of Terranova: A Bookstore at the End


Manuel Rivas's book tells of Vicenzo Fontana, the elderly owner of the long-standing Terranova Bookstore, on the day it's set to close due to the greed of real-estate speculators. On this final day, Vincenzo spends the night in his beloved store filled with more than seventy years of fugitive histories.   Jumping from the present to various points in the past, the novel ferries us back to Vicenzo's childhood, when his father opened the store in 1935, to the years that the store was run by his Uncle Eliseo, and to the years in the lead-up to the democratic transition, which Vicenzo spent as far away from the bookstore as possible, in Madrid.   With translator Jacob Rogers.
