Tuesday, November 164:00pm to 5:00pm
The biblical Joseph's behaviors, interpersonal relationships, and personal development are often difficult to understand, and at times seem to defy explanation.
Samuel J. Levine, a Touro Law Center professor, will offer a coherent and cohesive reading of Joseph's story that presents a portrait of Joseph as an individual on the autism spectrum. Viewed through this lens, Joseph emerges as a more familiar and less enigmatic individual, exhibiting both strengths and weaknesses commonly associated with autism spectrum disorder.
Stephen Rosenbaum, a UW disability studies scholar and lawyer, will offer commentary.
