What's your educational
background and what brought
you to Michigan?
I did my undergrad in his-
tory at Harvard, buttI was always
interested in psychology. Later I
did my Ph.D. in social and clinical
psychology in Brandeis. I came to
Michigan in the 1980s assa fellow
of Michigan Society of Fellows.
Then I worked in Counseling
and Psychological Services as a
counselor for several years before
becoming a teacher.
What classes do you teach?
A variety of courses since my
teaching began. The core course
being a first-year seminar offered
through the Residential College
called Listening to Holocaust
Survivors. It is based on the 35

years of my own work with Holo-
caust survivors beginning in the
1970s. The focus of the course is
a very close interpretation of sur-
vivors' memoirs and interview
transcripts.
What's the goal of the class?
The aim of this class is to listen
as closely an we can. How does
the context impact what survi-
vors say? What does each word
or phrase suggest? Students also
learn to listen better in general,
to appreciate the capacity of peo-
pie's communicating experience
and the barriers to being under-
stood.
What is your teaching phi-
losophy?
I see teaching as a conversa-
tion, especially in small courses

like a seminar. We typically have
about 16, students, and I get to
know them very well. Itts amaz-
ing that every year students come
up with new questions, issues and
different ways of looking atcthings
in the same course I have been
teaching for over 20 years. Some-
times I get lucky - students bring
up issues that are more interest-
log and sophisticated than what
I planned - and as a teacher, you
learn to go with that luck.
What's next for you?
Iwill be working in Montreal
this winter with a very large
project that involves survivors of
genocide - primarily Rwandans
and Cambodians.
