    12/11/2014 Duração: 01h24min

    Many Jewish thinkers have considered it close to heresy to validate life in the Diaspora. But what if the Diaspora is a blessing in disguise? In At Home in Exile, Alan Wolfe, writing for the first time about his Jewish heritage, makes an impassioned, eloquent and controversial argument that Jews should take pride in their Diasporic tradition. Wolfe is joined by a distinguished panel of scholars who review and critique this work. Alan Wolfe is the founding director of the Boisi Center and professor of political science at Boston College. Ben Birnbaum is special assistant to the president of Boston College, executive director of its Office of Marketing Communications, and editor of Boston College Magazine. Susannah Heschel is the Eli Black Professor of Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College. Kevin Kenny is professor and chair of the History Department at Boston College, where he teaches courses on American immigration and global migration.
