Dr. Jennifer Rich
 

The Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Genocide Studies is delighted to announce its first ever Scholar-in-Residence, Dr. Jennifer Rich, who will be visiting in the Fall.

Dr. Rich is Co-Director of the Rowan Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies. She teaches across the College of Education at Rowan University, New Jersey, and is also affiliated with the Thomas N. Bantivoglio Honors College.​​ All of her teaching has an emphasis on social justice and anti-bias education. Her research is focused on Holocaust and genocide education, with a special interest in transgenerational memory and teacher identity. She investigates Holocaust and genocide curricula and best practices for teaching the Holocaust across the K-12 continuum.

Dr. Rich’s first engagement at FGCU will take place on Sunday September 22, 2020, ay 3:00 pm in Sugden Hall Room 111. She will speak on “The Future of Holocaust Memory,” based on her forthcoming book Keepers of Memory. In this, she will be discussing how the Second and Third Generations want the Holocaust to be remembered as we move forward to a time when the survivors are no longer with us.

No registration is necessary, and parking is free. This is a “must see” event!
