PopUp Exhibition | Rebecca Golbert on Jewish Memory in Ukraine

Apr 20, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Rebecca Golbert, executive director of the Institute for Jewish Law and Israel Studies at UC Berkeley, scholarship reflects overlapping interests in Jewish and Holocaust studies, anthropology and ethnography, and conflict resolution and mediation.  Her doctoral and postdoctoral research focused on Ukrainian Jewish community and identity and Holocaust memory and memorialization within post-Soviet Ukraine. Her presentation will be accompanied by portraits of Russian Jewish authors made in Kiev in the 1980s by the Ukrainian artist, Matvey Vaisberg (b. 1958).



About the PopUp Exhibition Series

Each week, UC Berkeley faculty and students, visiting artists and other notable guests present brief lectures focused on selected treasures from the The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life. One speaker and one object at the time, these “flash” exhibitions include the opportunity to view the art and artifacts discussed intimately and up close.

Bring your own lunch, enjoy complimentary refreshments, and take part in an exciting learning program, free and open to the public. Close-up view of collections included.
