Public Lecture by Lissa Skitolsky, PhD 2019-20 Spatz Visiting Chair in Jewish Studies

"Holocaust Humor and our Sensibility of Anti-Black Violence"

The specific form of “holocaust humor” addressed aims to expose the complicity of popular narratives about the Holocaust with white indifference to the pervasive ruthlessness of systemic violence against black communities.

The Simon and Riva Spatz Visiting Chair in Jewish Studies is intended to bring distinguished scholars from around the globe to share their expertise and perspectives with students and faculty at Dalhousie University and members of the broader Halifax community. The Chair maintains a focus on contemporary topics, but is otherwise broadly inclusive of scholars from a wide variety of arts, humanities, and social science backgrounds​
