Alma Rachel Heckman’s research crosses Jewish history, North Africa, French empire and the history of social movements. Her talk emerges from her project “Radical Nationalists: Moroccan Jewish Communists 1925-1975.”
Heckman is Assistant Professor of History and Jewish Studies at UC Santa Cruz.
The Center for Cultural Studies will continue to host a Wednesday colloquium series, which features current cultural studies work by campus faculty and visitors. The sessions are informal, normally consisting of a 30-40 minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, with presentations beginning at 12:15. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunches; the Center will provide coffee, tea, and cookies.
