PtJA on drive-time radio
Teri Dobbs, USA international co-investigator, presented an invited lecture on February 16, 2018 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Mead Witter School of Music Graduate Research Symposium, ‘Performing the Jewish Archive: Rediscovering Jewish Music and Theatre’. Earlier in the day, Dobbs was the featured invited guest on Madison’s independent radio station, WORT 89.9 FM, for the drive-time show, The Morning Buzz. Dobbs discussed her research agenda with PtJA and reviewed the voluminous accomplishments of the grant team while previewing possible future projects.
Professor Dobbs traveled next to Munich, Germany, February 20–26, 2018 with UW-Madison PtJA colleague and local PtJA partner, Professor Rachel Feldhay Brenner, to present their PtJA-related work, ‘Holocaust: Literature, Music, Memory, and Representation’. The interdisciplinary conference, Near but Far: Holocaust Education Revisited, was held at Ludwig Maximillian University and focused on the work of scholars who educate students or the public about the crimes of the National Socialists and the reception of these crimes, as well as those who are in other ways connected to Holocaust education.
Finally, to complete a very busy couple of months, Dobbs gave an overview of the PtJA project and previewed some of her scholarship resulting from it at the biennial Music Education and Teacher Education National Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, March 22–24, 2018. Her research was selected by peer review, the Society for Research in Music Education, and the National Association for Music Education (U.S.), and was the sole presentation of its kind at the conference.
