The Psychedelics and the Seminary Lecture Series continues March 28 with Sam Shonkoff.
Sam Shonkoff (Ph.D., University of Chicago) is the Taube Family Assistant Professor of Jewish Studies at the GTU, where he teaches on Jewish religious thought as well as methods in the study of religion. His scholarship focuses primarily on German-Jewish and Hasidic theologies, as well as appropriations of Hasidic spirituality in relatively secular spheres. Shonkoff is co-editor with Ariel Evan Mayse of _Hasidism: Writings on Devotion, Community and Life in the Modern World_ (Brandeis University Press, 2020) and the editor of _Martin Buber: His Intellectual and Scholarly Legacy_ (Brill, 2018). His current book project investigates themes of embodiment in Buber’s representations of Hasidism vis-à-vis the original sources. He is also affiliated with the UC Berkeley Center for the Science of Psychedelics and taught previously at Oberlin College. Click here to view Shonkoff’s publications.
