Expert talk with Dr Brangwen Stone

Wednesday 1 May | 1pm – 2pm

German-Jewish literature, which flourished before 1933, seemed unlikely to be resurrected after World War II. However, Jewish migration to Germany since reunification – especially from the Soviet Union and Israel – has led to the popularisation of German-Jewish literature in modern times. This talk will explore Jewish migration to Germany in the post-war era, looking at how it has influenced the context and themes of contemporary German-Jewish writing.

About the expert: Dr Brangwen Stone teaches and researches in Germanic Studies at The University of Sydney. She works on modern and contemporary Austrian, German, and Swiss literature, film, and theatre.

This event is held in partnership with The University of Sydney and Mandelbaum House. Members with valid access codes can access this expert talk for free. Non-members can access this event for $15.
