UW Graduate School Lecture | Dr. Seyla Benhabib | Oct 24, 2013
Dr. Seyla Benhabib will be giving the fourth lecture in the 2013 UW Graduate School Lecture titled Hannah Arendt’s Eichmann in Jerusalem, Fifty Years Later. Dr. Benhabib is the Eugene Meyer Professor of Political Science and Philosophy at Yale University and has won many awards and held many prestigious fellowships. Arendt’s 1963 book, Eichmann in Jerusalem was among the first to shed light on the atrocities committed by Nazis in World War II, and it raised questions about international jurisdiction, crimes against humanity, and punishing the perpetrators of genocide. Dr. Benhabib will give an overview of the controversy and discuss some of the book’s enduring lessons and questions.
