Academic/Fiscal Year 2011

Steven Alan Carr and David Lindquist

Co-Directors

Note: The Annual Report should provide a summary of the major activities and initiatives of the school/college and its departments.  It is not intended to be a compendium.

 

 

Section Statement

Section Executive Summary of this Annual Report
B-Executive Summary

The Institute continues to have a presence at both the local and national level.  We retain an Internet presence on both the web as well as Facebook, and we successfully sponsored a series of high-profile events on the IPFW campus.  Our half-day symposium in conjunction with the U.S. Holocaust Museum on how to teach the Holocaust effectively recently earned national recognition.  Last year, we successfully secured approximately $3000 in external funding from Temple Achduth Vesholom.  Our highlight event was a visit from filmmaker Sandra Schulberg in September, who screened a restored version of a documentary on the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunals.

 

As individual faculty, Steve Carr and David Lindquist maintain high profile relationships at the local, regional, national, and international levels with the most important organizations dedicated to Jewish life and Holocaust and Genocide education.  We both engage in an active scholarly agenda devoted to research and effective pedagogy centered around Holocaust and Genocide Studies.
