Gertrude Stein: Woman of Faith?
As part of the Lowell Humanities Series, Catharine R. Stimpson, university professor at New York University and dean of NYU's Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, discusses Gertrude Stein's complex relationship with her Jewish heritage, the impact of her Jewishness on her writing, and her elective cultural appropriation of Catholic mysticism. Stimpson is the co-editor of Stein: Writings 1903–1932 (Library of America, 1998), and was the founding editor of Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society for the University of Chicago Press.
Stimpson is introduced by Boston College Russian and English professor Maxim D. Shrayer.
