Claudio Saunt lecture: Indian Removal and Mass Deportation in the Modern Era

Claudio Saunt will give a lecture titled “Indian Removal and Mass Deportation in the Modern Era” at 7 p.m. Jan. 21 via Zoom. Saunt will explore the history of Indian removal in the context of other mass deportations in the 19th and 20th centuries, looking specifically at the US-sponsored expulsion of the Indian population in the 1830s, known as the “Trail of Tears,” when some 46,000 members of multiple Indian nations were forcibly moved from their ancestral homelands and driven westward. This removal of entire populations created something of a model for future actions by colonial empires around the world, including the infamous deportations of World War II. Notoriously, during the Nazi conquest of Eastern Europe, Hitler equated “indigenous inhabitants,” with “Indians,” and declared, “the Volga must be our Mississippi.” Sponsored by the Siegal Lifelong Learning Program of Case Western Reserve University and is co-sponsored by Beth El – The Heights Synagogue.

Siegal Lifelong Learning presents the following remote lecture: Sibling Rivalry in the Book of Genesis

Lecturer: Anthony Wexler, SAGES Teaching Fellow, Lecturer, Department of English, CWRU. 7 p.m. Feb. 18. The book of Genesis is full of stories about siblings who do not get along. Indeed, it would be impossible to read Genesis without considering the first fratricide, or the struggles between Isaac and Ishmael, Jacob and Esau, Rachel and Leah, and Joseph and his brothers. In this lecture, we’ll examine these rivalries and the connections between them. We’ll consider why such rivalries play such an important role in the first book of the Bible, and the role that parents play – or fail to play – in these rivalries. case.edu/lifelonglearning/lectures/sibling-rivalry-book-genesis-remote
