Advance Notice

Lipstadt, Magee put creativity and history together in conversation

Rosemary Magee and Deborah Lipstadt

What does creativity mean in a historical context? How does the imagination inform scholarship? Hear Rosemary Magee, vice president and secretary of the University, and Deborah Lipstadt, Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies, discuss these and other questions as they explore the curious relationship between history and creativity at a Creativity Conversation on Monday, Oct. 3.

They will also be discussing Lipstadt's latest book. "The Eichmann Trial" examines the capture of an SS lieutenant colonel in 1960, his trial, and the effect of the survivors' courtroom testimony of their experiences on the world's understanding of the Holocaust. Lipstadt is known around the world for her work on the Holocaust and has been appointed by presidents Clinton and Obama to serve on the United States Holocaust Memorial Council.

The event, held at 4 p.m. in the Jones Room of the Woodruff Library, is free and open to the public. Light refreshments served afterward. For more information on this and other Creativity Conversations, visit
