University Professor of Faith and Culture
Dr. Sandra Yocum
In this moving and illuminating interview, our very own Dr. Samuel Dorf of the University of Dayton asks the tough question: when we think we have an answer to the question of what culture is, in what way has that answer been shaped for us by outside forces? Is culture really what 'most people' assume it to be? Or ought its definition to include especially those aspects of life that are not often considered to be part of 'culture'? Reflecting on his work in musicology, his and his family's Jewish faith, and the importance of combatting injustice in the Jewish tradition, Dr. Dorf weaves for us an intricate portrait, a symphony, if you will, of faith and culture lived out and experienced from generation to generation.
