SPOTLIGHT

Beth Israel Spotlight Series: Jeffrey Bernstein

“Training Future Citizens: Spillover From My Jewish Life To My Professional Life”

Sunday, May 31, 7:45 p.m.

In explaining the nature of this presentation, Bernstein said, “In my evolution as a professor, I find myself thinking more and more about teaching issues, particularly the training of future citizens. In hindsight, I see how this journey has mapped, in many ways, onto my own Jewish journey during my years as an academic. I’ll discuss the intersections between these two journeys, with special consideration given to the ways in which my own journeys reflect larger issues within academia, and Judaism.”

Jeffrey L. Bernstein is a professor of political science, and an affiliated faculty member of the Jewish Studies program, at Eastern Michigan University, where he has served since 1997. He holds an undergraduate degree from Washington University, and a masters and doctorate from the University of Michigan. He is a co-editor and contributing author of Citizenship Across the Curriculum (Indiana University Press, 2010), and has published numerous papers on voting behavior, and on teaching and learning issues.

Beth Israel’s Spotlight Series features lectures, presentations and performances that highlight the stories, talents and experiences of its members.
