Pic Balazs

 

Research Fellow, Post-Doc

 

Trained as a philosopher and a sociologist (his PhD thesis was written on Michel Foucault’s genealogical method and its relationship to critical sociology), he has published on topics related to the sociology of education, social theory, critical sociology, the epistemology of the social sciences and social constructivism. He is currently working on a study of the reemergence of the “Jewish problem” in contemporary works of philosophical, social and political criticism, understood in the framework of the crisis of social critique.

His publications on the topic include "Critical Whiteness Studies and the Jewish Problem", Zeitschrift für kritische Sozialtheorie und Philosophie, Vol. 5, Issue 1, Apr. 2018, and "Social Criticism and the 'Jewish Problem'" in Alvin Rosenfeld (ed.) Anti-Zionism, Antisemitism, and the Dynamics of Delegitimization, Indiana University Press, 2019 (forthcoming).

Occasionally, he also works as a translator of social scientific and philosophical works and as a journalist, writing on political and social developments in present-day Hungary for Hungarian, Swiss, and French journals.

Ph.D Candidate

 

Silvana Kandel Lamdan has a BA in Philosophy and Jewish Thought and a MA in Jewish Thought from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Today she is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Haifa, under the supervision of Dr. Cedric Cohen Skalli. In her doctoral research, she intends to analyze historically, philosophically and theologically the intellectual interchange between Judaism and radical political Latin American Liberation Theology in the years 1960s-1980s. She is conducting a critical study of the explicit and implicit dialogue that the first generation of liberation theologians had with the Jewish tradition and with modern Jewish thinkers, especially those from German-speaking milieus like Hermann Cohen, Martin Buber, Franz Rosenzweig, Ernst Bloch, and Walter Benjamin. At the beginning of their intellectual careers, many Latin American theologians that would later become the referents of the various branches of Liberation Theology (like Gutierrez, Scannone, Ellacuría, Dussel, and others), spent a period studying in Europe, mostly in Germany, Belgium, and France. There they were exposed to Jewish social and political thinking, either through direct reading of their writings, or through the mediation of leading Christian pre and post-Holocaust German theologians like Karl Barth, Jürgen Moltmann, Johann Baptist Metz, and others, whose theologies would have a significant influence in these nascent Latin American revolutionary trends. Silvana is studying how “Jewish ideas” in intense dialogue with both Jewish tradition and German culture, would be transformed by Christian theologians, in the context of Latin American oppressive regimes of the 1960s and 1970s, into radical political and theological ideas.
