Drs. Ilona Klein, French & Italian, and Steven Wood, Chemistry, will present at the Humanities Center’s weekly colloquium on Thursday, September 29 at 3:00 PM in 4010 JFSB. This colloquium will discuss why humanists need chemists and why chemists need humanists to decode our own life’s symbols, quandaries, and questions. Mendeleev’s periodic table is as amazing as a poem that rhymes. Understanding the microcosmic laws of the atoms helps humankind understand better the macroscopic movements of our existence and their different levels of meaning.

Title: “The periodic table is like a poem,” wrote Primo Levi. Bridging survival, chemistry, literature, Judaism, and life
