A number of professors are involved in national and international communities, Dr. Nila Ginger Hofman, a professor in the department of anthropology, has been studying the Jewish community in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia.

Dr. Hofman came to the United States in 1984 from the Netherlands. Dr. Hofman has been studying the Jewish community in Zagreb and, based on her involvement and hard work in the Jewish community, she will have a book coming out titled, “Renewed Survival: Jewish Community Life in Croatia.�

Dr. Hofman came to DePaul in the fall of 2001 and worked for the department of international studies for two years. She then joined the department of anthropology in the fall of 2003. “I really like teaching at DePaul which provides a great opportunity for students to learn outside of classroom through a number of courses including Discover and Explore Chicago. I also much enjoy the diverse body of students studying at DePaul,� said Dr. Hofman. “I have been involved with a number of action-based research projects in and around Chicago. Some of them have involved DePaul students as co-researchers. These projects range from working with women who inject heroin to undocumented immigrants.

“The objective of my courses is to inspire critical, creative and analytical thinking in students. DePaul’s focus on experiential and service learning allows me the opportunity to move learning and teaching outside of the classroom,� said Hofman.§id=1
