The Sam and Helen Stahl Center presents Tobias Brinkmann of Penn State University in his lecture as of a part of the Legacy Heritage Jewish Studies Projects series, Roots and Restlessness: Jewish Lives in the Arts
The 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition symbolized the rebirth of Chicago after the disastrous 1871 fire that had destroyed large parts of the city. Tobias Brinkmann, author of the recent book Sundays at Sinai, will address the involvement of Chicago’s established Jewish community in the exposition, and explore questions of Jewish-Christian relations, aesthetic debates, and Reform Judaism’s treatment of women.
