Beyond These Walls: Material Cultures of Jewish & Chinese Detainees
Hosted By: The Center for Jewish History
The Center for Jewish History and the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) are pleased to partner in this event, a panel discussion of the materials created by Jewish and Chinese detainees as they waited for entry into the United States. MOCA will be bringing some items from their Golden Venture Paper Sculptures collection to be viewed during a dessert reception to follow the discussion.
Speakers include Claire R. Thomas (Professor of Law and Director of the Asylum Clinic at New York Law School), Ernie Collette (Supervising Attorney in Mobilization for Justice’s Immigration Law Project), Roslyn Bernstein (Professor Emerita, Baruch College, CUNY and Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism), and Ayelet Brinn (Philip D. Feltman Assistant Professor of Modern Jewish History, University of Hartford). The discussion will be moderated by Andrew Rebetta, curator of MOCA’s 2017 special exhibition FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures.
This will be an in-person and Zoom event.
