A conversation on Gulag Literature and the Literature of Nazi Camps: An Intercontexual Reading (Indiana University Press, 2019), by Leona Toker.
Leona Toker's book, Gulag Literature and the Literature of Nazi Camps, performs an intercontexual reading, one against each other, of narratives and texts documenting writers' experiences of repression under the Soviet and the Nazi regimes and their effect on the subject. Naomi Mandel and Amos Goldberg will discuss with Toker the twofold analysis she presents in her book: what narrative qualities have emerged in the light of the unique historical background of each of these regimes – the similarities and differences; how the prominent features of one text shed light on the veiled features and methods of the other; and what is the new meaning obtained during the double reading that takes place during the passage of time.
Leona Toker is a professor of English at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Naomi Mandel is the Ann and Joseph Edelman Chair in American Studies at the Department of English at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Amos Goldberg is the Jonah M. Machover Chair in Holocaust Studies and the head of the Research Institute of Contemporary Jewry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
This event is held via ZOOM Webinar. Registration required to attend this event.
