Opening Reception | Pressed: Images from the Jewish Daily Forward:


For more than 120 years, the Forward has given an eager American Jewish audience a unique mix of news, culture and opinion. Published on the Lower East Side beginning in 1897, this Yiddish-language newspaper had a circulation of more than 275,000 in its heyday. Now a digital-only publication appearing in both English and Yiddish, the Forward maintains a vast archive tracing the history of the printed publication and the stories it covered. Pressed dives into this archive, presenting a selection of metal plates used to print images in the paper, along with contemporary prints made, using the historic plates, with traditional equipment at Bowne & Co., Stationers. For some, the pages of the Forward on which the images once appeared will be displayed alongside these images. Together these pictures of strikes and activists, Yiddish theater stars and baseball players, daily life and historic moments, present the history of this singular publication, its audience and Jewish life in America and around the world.

Talk | The Notre-Dame Fire, and the Paris Cathedral's Original Fall and Resurrection


The April 2019 fire that nearly destroyed the Cathedral of Notre-Dame revived a polemic with resonance well beyond France. Should the edifice be reconstructed “as it was” or is the very idea of Gothic “authenticity” questionable – and should the extent and nature of restoration be open to discussion? This talk proposes to leave aside Notre Dame as lieu de mémoire and focuses on it as a material object within a historical context.   Speaker Allan Potofsky is a historian and Professeur des Universités at the Université Paris-Diderot.
