The Program in Jewish Studies, in conjunction with the Norlin Library Archives and Special Collections, the CU Art Museum and the Boulder Public Library's Maria Rogers Oral History Project is building an exciting collection of archival holdings directly related to Jewish studies fields in history, visual culture, art and art history, religious studies, international law, and political science.
The Lebowitz Collection of Twentieth-Century Jewish-American Literature, the Post Holocaust American Judaism Archive, Through Soviet Jewish Eyes Collection, the Fingestan Collection and the Movers Archives are all exclusive to the CU archives. These excellent resources will help continue CU's growth as a world-class institution supporting Jewish studies. In addition, these archives will catalyze the educational growth of a new crop of scholars ready to conduct original research, develop critical thinking and writing skills, and gain valuable insight into the ways in which how one develops a library, archive, human rights group, or religious movement.
The Boulder Action for Soviet Jewry Oral History Archive is a joint project with the Program in Jewish Studies, the Boulder Public Library's Maria Rogers Oral History Program, CU Archives and the community members whose lives were affected by the Boulder Action for Soviet Jewry organization. This project highlights of the role a university can play in creating, preserving and utilizing a primary historical source and will constitute a comprehensive resource for research and understanding of this important Boulder human rights and refugee resettlement organization for generations to come.
