From the Other Shore: A Conference Celebrating the Careers of Aron Rodrigue and Steve Zipperstein - 25 Years of Collaboration at Stanford

This conference celebrates the joint achievements of Steven Zipperstein and Aron Rodrigue over twenty-five years of collaboration as renowned scholars and beloved teachers of Jewish history at Stanford University. Between the two of them, they have supervised the dissertations of about thirty students, nearly all of whom now teach at leading universities and colleges. Former students will present papers relating to themes in the wide-ranging work of Profs. Zipperstein and Rodrigue in the study of Jewish politics, culture, and local history. Speakers on roundtables will reflect on Stanford's signature role in the study of Jewish History over the past quarter century, as well as the future of the field at Stanford and in the academy more broadly. Celebrations will also offer opportunities for students and colleagues to reflect informally on the achievements of Profs. Rodrigue and Zipperstein and the study of Jewish history at Stanford.
