Please join us for the Geoffrey H. Hartman Fellowship Symposium at Sterling Memorial Library’s Lecture Hall at 9 AM on May 6, 2018 (entrance at York Street).
The Fortunoff Video Archive as we know it would not have been possible without the vision and leadership of Professor Geoffrey H. Hartman. An eminent professor of comparative literature at Yale, Professor Hartman served as Faculty Advisor to the Fortunoff Video Archive until his death on March 14, 2016.
To honor Professor Hartman, the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies has established the Geoffrey H. Hartman Fellowship Program. Please join us for a public symposium featuring the scholars who have spent the last year working with testimonies from the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies.
