Format: Lecture followed by Q&A

Dalia Feldman discusses how Jewish writers in Latin America, including Margo Glantz, Victor Perera, Moacyr Scliar, Ilan Stavans, and Jacobo Timerman, understand their identities as Jews and recent immigrants, and how that understanding is manifested in their literature. Feldman is a doctoral candidate in the modern Jewish studies program at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, where she is researching the literature of Jewish diaspora communities.
Feldman is introduced by Dwayne Carpenter, professor of Hispanic studies and codirector of the Jewish studies program.
