Mid-Week Field Notes–September 1, 2021

Some quick things:

  1. I’m looking forward to Labor Day weekend and self-isolation to work on my new novel-in-verse book proposal. I need to work on some new poems and lay out the annotated outline. What a pleasure it will be to write creatively!
  2. I’m back on campus starting tomorrow. I’m teaching five courses at four schools this semester: America & the Holocaust and Resistance and Rescue during the Nazi Regime at The College of New Jersey; English Comp II at Mercer County Community College; Professional Writing & Business Communication for the MA in Nonprofit Management program at Gratz College; and Family History at William Paterson University’s new online university for adult learners, WPOnline.
  3. Head’s up: The Mercer Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Education Center will be offering programs this fall on Holocaust Art as Resistance (Oct. 5, noon ET via Zoom), Part II of The History of Genocide in Cinema (Oct. 28, 6 pm ET via Zoom), Remembering Kristallnacht–a Memoir by Fred Behrendt (Nov. 10, 7 pm ET via Zoom), and Lemkin, UN Declaration of Human Rights and the Courts (Dec. 8, 7 pm ET via Zoom). More details to come! If you’d like to be on our mailing list, please either reply to this post or send a note to me at krasnerb(at)mccc(dot)edu.

Shana tova! Here’s to a happy and healthy New Year!
