The 61st Annual Latke-Hamantash Debate, a University of Chicago tradition, will take place on Tuesday, November 20 at 7:30 pm in Mandel Hall. This year's debate features Visiting Professor of Law Susan Bandes, along with Professors Austan Goolsbee (GSB), Matthew Stopler (Oriental Institute), and Alberto Simpser (political science). Each distinguished scholar will present an analysis from the perspective of his or her discipline addressing the question of which Jewish holiday food is superior, the latke or the hamantash. No word yet as to which treat Professor Bandes has decided to defend.
