Cardin Lecture

Wednesday, October 23, 2019, 6 pm
McGuire Hall

The Jerome S. Cardin Memorial Lecture was established by the Jerome S. Cardin family to foster exploration of topics in the humanities pertinent to the Jewish and Christian traditions. Hosted by the Center for the Humanities, Loyola University Maryland is proud to announce that internationally bestselling author, award-winning critic and essayist Daniel Mendelsohn will deliver the 2019 Jerome S. Cardin Memorial Lecture. Mendelsohn’s lecture is titled “Latkes with the Priests in Lwów: Jews and Christians, Harmony and Horror in Prewar Poland.” Delving into a rich store of family anecdote and legend, Mendelsohn will explore how relative harmony between diverse cultures and religions can devolve into tales of horror – and, sometimes, of heroism. The Cardin Lecture will be followed by a book signing with Mendelsohn and kosher reception featuring desserts and beverages.
