CFI-LA’s FEED YOUR BRAIN Lecture Series
Mondo-Judeo: A Special Presentation
Sunday, August 1
Professor Mel Gordon will be presenting four lectures over six hours on outsider Jewish culture beginning at 11 a.m. with our “Feed Your Brain” lecture.
The series will begin with “Chagallism and the Russian Yiddish Stage,” followed by “The Tragic Origins of Jewish Humor”; “Jews and the Occult, or Why Madonna’s Kabbalah is the True Kabbalah“; and “Hanussen, Hitler’s Jewish Clairvoyant.”
You may join any or all of the lectures for just $10, or $4 for students, or free to Friends of the Center. There will be 15-minute breaks between after the first and third lectures and a half-hour lunch break after the second one. Canter’s is providing a lunch truck that will sell food to participants during a lunch break beginning about 1:30 p.m. on the parking lot.
Gordon is Professor of Theatre Arts at the University of California, Berkeley. A director and writer, he is the author of 13 books and 130 articles on popular culture and American, French, German, Israeli, Italian, Russian, and Yiddish theater. This summer he co-authored Siegel and Shuster’s Funnyman: The First Jewish Superhero.
