You are cordially invited to attend the following research talk by this candidate for the Lorry I. Lokey Chair in Judaic Studies at Portland State University. This position will build strength in modern European Jewish history and culture. We encourage attendance by faculty and graduate students from all departments and disciplines.

Julie Lieber successfully defended her doctoral dissertation in January at the University of Pennsylvania. She is a specialist in modern European and Jewish history, as well as gender theory and women's history. Her dissertation, "Imagining and Living Gender: Rabbis and Jewish Women in /fin de sihcle/ Vienna, 1867-1914," examines the lives of traditional Jewish women living within a culture that was exploring very non-traditional ideas about gender and sexuality.

She is the recipient of a Brenner Award for archival research in Jerusalem, as well as dissertation fellowships from the National Foundation for Jewish Culture and the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture. This year she is an adjunct instructor at the University of Denver, teaching courses in modern Jewish history, Jewish women's history, and German history.
