Dartmouth’s Preston H. Kelsey Professor of Religion Susan Ackerman ’80 will challenge your belief system and invite your thoughts as she delves into this deceptively provocative question drawing on her experience in the classroom, her own research, and a recent course for Dartmouth’s 250th Anniversary. Along the way, you’ll explore those divine distinctions that unite Dartmouth alumni worldwide into a powerful, diverse—yet cohesive—congregation.

Ackerman is well-respected specialist in the religion of ancient Israel and the religions of Israel's eastern Mediterranean and ancient Near Eastern neighbors (Mesopotamia, Egypt, and Canaan) and has received awards on her excellence in teaching and mentoring and advising Dartmouth students. 

The cost is $62.50 for Dartmouth Club of Suburban NJ members and $67.50 for others which includes the catered lunch and coffee and pastries. Space is limited and please register by January 27.
