Just in from @princetonupress, Steven Weitzman (@universityofpennsylvia), THE ORIGIN OF THE JEWS: THE QUEST FOR ROOTS IN A ROOTLESS AGE (2017)!
.
"Scholars have written hundreds of books on the topic and have come up with scores of explanations, theories, and historical reconstructions, but this is the first book to trace the history of the different approaches that have been applied to the question, including genealogy, linguistics, archaeology, psychology, sociology, and genetics. Weitzman shows how the quest has been fraught since its inception with religious and political agendas, how anti-Semitism cast its long shadow over generations of learning, and how recent claims about Jewish origins have been difficult to disentangle from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He does not offer neatly packaged conclusions but invites readers on an intellectual adventure, shedding new light on the assumptions and biases of those seeking answers—and the challenges that have made finding answers so elusive."

We now have custom @yaledivinityschool Moleskines in the #YDSbookstore in blue, red, white, and black!

New book from @uc_press: Tom Adam Davies, MAINSTREAMING BLACK POWER (2017)!
.
"MAINSTREAMING BLACK POWER upends the narrative that the Black Power movement allowed for a catharsis of black rage but achieved little institutional transformation or black uplift."
.
"Davies has provided the best analysis I have seen of why Black Power was more moderate and influential than is sometimes acknowledged." - Anthony J. Badger

Of course, one may consider first impressions when interviewing, starting a new job, going on a first date, etc. Studies show that people make instantaneous judgments about others simply based on the impression their faces makes on them. While this book—Alexander Todorov, FACE VALUE: THE IRRESISTIBLE INFLUENCE OF FIRST IMPRESSIONS (@princetonupress, 2017)—may help with your next job interview, what might it also reveal about your implicit biases and stereotypes that may lead to discriminatory behaviors?
.
In addition to checking out this book, also consider taking some of the online IATs (Implicit Association Test) through Project Implicit out of @harvard.

At 1:00 PM on #Sunday, May 14th (#MothersDay), at The Grove (@grovenhv), @yaledivinityschool alumna Alana Massey (@alanakm) will present "a talk exploring the undue burden placed on mothers throughout history and continues in our modern media and social discourses about womanhood and its obligations. Using examples from pop culture and personal experience, Massey will consider how alternative narrative approaches to how we see and understand mothers might make us more forgiving and gentle toward our own."

This event is hosted by the #YaleHumanistCommunity as part of the #HumanistHaven series of events. Come check it out!

A new addition to the Lives of Great Religious Books series is out: Bruce B. Lawrence, THE KORAN IN ENGLISH: A BIOGRAPHY

I absolutely love packing up tons of books and bringing them to an event, and I ALWAYS overpack! This time, the #YDSbookstore didn't have to travel far, since the historic Tri-Conference Annual Meeting (#Massachusetts, #Connecticut, #RhodeIsland) of the @UnitedChurchofChrist was held in #HartfordCT! I am so grateful to be involved in the weekend-long gathering! My sincerest thanks for letting me be a part of this!!!

If I were writing a memoir, this day would be included.
.
Cheryl Strayed (@cherylstrayed) says Mary Karr's newest book, THE ART OF MEMOIR (@harperperennial, 2016), "will be the definitive book on reading and writing memoir for years to come." Plus, it's hilariously entertaining for readers of all purposes!

Two new books from @harvardpress (one new in paperback) arrived!
.
1. Michael O. Hardimon, RETHINKING RACE: THE CASE FOR DEFLATIONARY REALISM (2017)
.
"This book is an essay in the metaphysics of race. It seeks to provide a philosophical answer to a single basic question: namely, what, if anything, is race in human beings?" (2)
.
2. Renee C. Romano, RACIAL RECKONING: PROSECUTING AMERICA'S CIVIL RIGHTS MURDERS (paperback, 2017)
.
Chanelle Rose says, "Considering the current partisan and racial divide over the prosecution of police shootings of unarmed black men, this is a must-read for historians, legal analysts, and journalists interested in understanding the larger meaning of civil rights or racially explosive trials in America."

It's #GraduationWeekend for students here at @yaledivinityschool and the entire @yale community. While some may know exactly where they are headed, others may still be figuring out what's next. As predominately #humanities students here at #YaleDivinitySchool, a little #sensemaking of your degree may prove helpful, boosting your confidence in the fact that the humanities are powerful, relevant, and important. Check out Christian Madsbjerg's SENSEMAKING: THE POWER OF THE HUMANITIES IN THE AGE OF ALGORITHM (@hachettebooks, 2017)! It might just help you with your next cover letter!
.
Samuel Moyn (@harvard) says, "Christian Madsbjerg offers a ringing endorsement of how humanities knowledge is still critically necessary to make sense of the world and its problems."
.
"Companies must master not just big data, but thick data—insights into culture, history, and the social structures underlying human behavior. SENSEMAKING is the road map for how this works," says Francisco D'Souza, CEO of Cognizant.
