RADICAL AESTHETICS  AND THE HOLOCAUST

On Alain Resnais' Nuit et Brouillard (Night and Fog)


Teach Europe is a partnership among a number of European consulates and cultural organizations that provides high school teachers of languages, social sciences and arts with educational workshops intended to help them incorporate new perspectives and research into their classroom teaching.


Rutgers University has hosted this program annually since 2003; the 2006 session took place at the Douglass Student Center on October 27, 2006



The international conference Children in Europe, Children and Europe was held at the Center on April 20, 2007.  It was organized by  Center Director Uri Eisenzweig and co-organizers from the Rutgers-Camden Center for Children and Childhood Studies: Jane Siegel, Associate Professor of Sociology, and Janet Golden, Professor of History.

Support was provided by the Center with additional funds from the Camden School of Law and the School of Social Work, New Brunswick.

The conference aimed to bring together both Rutgers faculty and the many non-governmental, foundation, and state organizations dealing with children.  It compared European and American approaches in issues of juvenile justice, child welfare, and children's health.

In 2006-2007 the Center offered a series of research presentations by advanced graduate students.  The presentations were titled Off Center, On Europe.  The students were recruited from  humanities and social science departments and the presentations were drawn from their dissertation research.
