Silvana Kandel Lamda
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.
