On Wednesday, November 4, Professor Berel Lang of Wesleyan University, author of Primo Levi: The Matter of a Life, will visit our campus and offer a lecture entitled “Primo Levi: Chemist, Survivor, Writer.”  Professor Lang’s many books include Act and Idea in the Nazi Genocide (University of Chicago Press, 1990), The Anatomy of Philosophical Style (Basil Blackwell, 1990), Holocaust Representation: Art within the Limits of History and Ethics (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2000) and Philosophical Witnessing: The Holocaust as Presence (University Press of New England, 2009). His recently published biography, Primo Levi: The Matter of a Life (Yale University Press, 2013), is a groundbreaking study of the convergence of the roles of scientist, humanist, witness, and moral philosopher in Levi’s writing.
