Reflecting on narrative and visual art produced by women artists during the Holocaust, this discussion-based seminar will explore memory, image, and the sustaining power of hope. The conversation will include work by by Judith Weinshall Liberman, an artist with extensive holdings in the Maltz collections, and will be led by Alexis Baker, a rhetoric scholar from Kent State University.
Books@Work brings professor-led literature seminars to workplaces and community settings to unleash personal and collective transformation through the power of shared narratives. Veteran Books@Work professor and experienced teacher Alexis Baker is a PhD Candidate at Kent State finishing her dissertation on women’s Holocaust narratives. Baker has written a chapter on representations of ethos, identity, and nourishment in Food, Feminisms, and Rhetoric, currently forthcoming from Southern Illinois University Press.
