Jews in Irish Literature
October 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$15
Representation of Jews in Irish Literature is a landmark project between Ulster University and the National University of Ireland, Galway. It examines the portrayal of Jewishness through an exhibition of publications which include a selection of key Irish-Jewish writing and Irish literature about Jews. Adopting a thematic and chronological approach, it investigates the depiction of Jews and Jewishness in Ireland from the Annals of Inisfallen in the medieval period, through centuries of poetry, prose and drama to the present day. Exhibition will be on view in lobby from 6pm. I’ll be reading from Jewtown and speaking about it with Ruth Gilligan, Professor Pól Ó Dochartaigh, Valerie Lapin and Mashey Bernstein.
