In a Human Voice: In Conversation with Psychologist Carol Gilligan
CONVERSATION WITH CAROL GILLIGAN
Thursday, November 3
7:30 – 9:00 p.m. ET
In person at JTS and Online
Psychologist Carol Gilligan revolutionized her field’s understanding of gender with her 1982 book, In A Different Voice: Psychological Theory and Women’s Development. Her work in the field focused on the human voice and inspired and informed a feminist-oriented movement in philosophical ethics known as the ethics of care.
Rabbi Naomi Kalish, the Harold and Carole Wolfe Director of JTS’s Center for Pastoral Education, will be in conversation with Professor Gilligan. The two will talk about her background, reflect on the influence of her Jewish upbringing, and discuss her groundbreaking work and its implications for today, forty years later.
