Emotion lies at the heart of all national movements, and Zionism is no exception. Professor Derek J. Penslar, Harvard University, will discuss his new book, Zionism: An Emotional State, which explores the history of the complex emotions underpinning this national movement. The resulting portrait of Zionism reconfigures how we understand Jewish identity amid continuing debates on the role of nationalism in the modern world. This lecture is free and open to the public. Free parking is available with online vehicle registration.
