Book discussion with Ester Reiter ! Nov. 2 – “A Future Without Hate or Need”

Screen Shot 2016-10-20 at 3.15.07 PM.png

Ester Reiter will discuss her new book A Future Without Hate or Need: The Promise of the Jewish Left in Canada (Between the Lines Books, 2016) on Wednesday, November 2 (6:00 PM) at the Tamiment Library. A reception with wine and cheese will follow the lecture. This event is sponsored by the Frederic Ewen Center.


Ester Reiter is a professor emeritus at York University, where she taught in the School of Women’s Studies. She grew up in the secular Jewish left in New York, and is a member of the United Jewish People’s Order in Toronto. Her knowledge of Yiddish made this research possible. A Future Without Hate or Need brings to life the rich and multi-layered lives of a dissident political community.  Activists in this secular Jewish community attempted to weave together their identities as Jews with their internationalist class politics and labour activism.

Copies of A Future Without Hate or Need will be available for purchase.


RSVP: email[at] with guest name(s) & title of event.

Open in Action: New Options for Sharing Scholarship
In recent years, we’ve seen an increase in the number of digital repositories where scholars may freely share their publications and data. To celebrate Open Access Week, we’ve invited the founders of two prominent new multi-disciplinary repositories to discuss their goals and priorities, and the technology underlying their systems. Humanities Commons is a social repository for humanists launched by the Modern Language Association in collaboration with Columbia University Libraries. SocArXiv is a preprint service directed by group of sociologists and research librarians in partnership with the Center for Open Science. We’ll have a round-table discussion with plenty of time for questions from the audience.
Open to the public. Visitors without NYU id should check in at the Security Desk upon entering the library.
Open Access Week is an international event supporting open access to scholarly research.
Wednesday, October 26, 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.
