The Department of Religion in Syracuse University’s College of Arts and Sciences will host a lecture by Zachary Braiterman on Dec. 2 at 4 p.m. in Room 320 of the Hall of Languages.
The lecture, “Technology, Translation and the Sound of Revelation,” is part of the department’s Religion and Society Speaker Series and is free and open to the public.
Braiterman, an assistant professor of religion, works in the field of modern Judaism, specializing in the 20th century. His latest project examines shifting aesthetic canons defined by Jugendstil, Expressionism and Bauhaus as they shape modern Jewish thought and culture in Germany prior to the Holocaust. His research and teaching interests touch upon the impact of modernity upon Jewish self-expression, ritual, text interpretation and community life. These include modern Jewish philosophy, theoretical aesthetics and classical Jewish sources.
