Center Organizes Memorial Conference for Prof. Rosemary Horowitz z''l (August 1, 2022)

professor_horowitz_lecturing_at_2019_conference_in_akko_1.pngIn cooperation with Appalachian State's Department of English and College of Arts and Sciences, the Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Peace Studies will host a Memorial Conference for its late director Prof. Rosemary Horowitz z''l on Monday, August 1, 2022. The all-day hybrid conference on Appalachian’s Boone campus will bring together collaborators, friends, and students of Dr. Horowitz z’’l from Appalachian State, the country and around the world to present work in areas of studies and academic fields to which she has made so many invaluable contributions. Prof. Eliyana R. Adler (Pennsylvania State University), an internationally-acclaimed historian of the modern Jewish experience in Eastern Europe, will be delivering the keynote lecture on Yizker books. Prof. Rosemary Horowitz z''l, the daughter of Holocaust survivors, began her remarkable academic career with a much-noted dissertation on Yizker books. She dedicated it "To the Six Million,"  a dedication that powerfully captured one of the central commitments of her life and career. 

The event is open to the public (in-person and virtually).
