Albert Memmi: The Most Important Jewish Thinker of the Twentieth Century (you may not know about)

A lecture by Dr. Jonathan Judaken, the Spence L. Wilson Chair in the Humanities at Rhodes College. He has published more than 60 academic articles on the history of existentialism, anti-Semitism, racism, and post-Holocaust French Jewish thought. He has written, edited, or co-edited 6 books. He is the author of Jean-Paul Sartre and the Jewish Question (2006); editor of Race After Sartre (2008) and Naming Race, Naming Racisms (2009); and co-editor of Situating Existentialism (2012), Memphis: 200 Years Together (2019), and The Albert Memmi Reader (2020). His most recent publications include introductions to a co-edited special issue of Jewish History (with Ethan Katz) on “Jews and Muslims in France Before and After Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher” (September 2018) and the roundtable he edited in the American Historical Review titled, “Rethinking Anti-Semitism” (October 2018). He is completing a monograph entitled, Critical Theories of Anti-Semitism: Confronting Modernity and Modern Judeophobia.

Funding for these lectures has been provided, in part, by the Dorothy and Elmer Kirsch Endowment Fund for the Hofstra Cultural Center.
