ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Dr. Sarah Pessin is Professor of Philosophy and Judaic Studies and the Director of the Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver (DU). Sarah works on topics in philosophy and theology with an emphasis on the role of concepts like exile and fragility in personal identity and inter-human community-making. Sarah has strong interests in inter-cultural dialogue, and served as the creative director for the development of DU’s Holocaust Memorial Social Action Site which aims to build bridges across diverse communities in Colorado. The author of numerous publications (including her recent book, Ibn Gabirol’s Theology of Desire (Cambridge University Press, 2013)), Sarah is broadly interested in the sacred nature of inter-human response, and is currently working on a range of projects, including a study of the limits of forgiveness and non-forgiveness.
