Why “People of the Book”: Reading and Writing as Jews
Please join us on Zoom as Faye Ringel kicks off our “People of the Book” series of cultural programs with “Why ‘People of the Book’: Reading and Writing as Jews,” looking at Jews as creators and consumers of literature, especially secular fiction and poetry, from ancient times to the present. How have Jews interacted with the non-Jewish literary cultures in which we have found ourselves?
Dr. Ringel, Professor Emerita of English at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, will examine themes of assimilation, Jewish identity, and the question of languages from the Roman Empire through the 21st Century. And all in one hour!
