On December 16, as part of Hebrew University’s webinar series “Towards New Horizons: Hebrew University Experts Share Their Insights“, a conversation was held between Prof. Eva Illouz and Prof. Moshe Sluchovsky on many aspects of COVID-19 and its deep impact.
Prof. Eva Illouz is a renowned sociologist. Her research focuses on the sociology of capitalism, the sociology of emotions, the sociology of gender and the sociology of culture. Her work explores several significant and thought-provoking themes, such as the influence of capitalism on emotions, the commodification of romance and the meaning of freedom, choice, and individualism in the modern world.
Prof. Moshe Sluhovsky is the Paulette and Claude Kelman Professor of the History of French Jewry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and past head of the Lafer Center for the Study of Women and Gender and of the Institute of History. He is currently studying the Jewish presence in Gay Berlin during the Weimar period and on the migration of gay and lesbian German Jews to Palestine in the 1930s.
