Penn Lightbulb Café: ‘American Jewish Men and the Anxieties of Breadwinning, 1850-1940’


Apr 23, 2019
06:00 PM until 07:00 PM


Beth Wenger’s teaching interests vary widely from broad surveys of modern European and American Jewish history, to courses on Holocaust memory, contemporary Jewish culture, American religious history, gender, and Jewish history, as well as many others. A specialist in American Jewish history, Wenger's interests also include European Jewish culture, American religion and ethnicity, and cultural, social and gender history.


The talk is part of the Penn Lightbulb Café, a free public lecture series presented by the School of Arts and Sciences and the Office of University Communications that sheds light on faculty research in the arts and sciences. The presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A. Café events are free and open to the public. Food and beverages will be available for purchase before, during, and after the talk. RSVPs are encouraged due to limited seating. For more information or directions, call or email Julian Shendelman at 215-898-8721 or
