Events | The Verbal Culture of Russian Jewish Revolutionaries

Monday March 26, 2012. 5:30 pm.

The McGill Jewish Studies department would like to welcome Professor Gabriella Safran, Professor and Director of Slavic Languages and Literatures at Standford University.

Dr. Safran also teaches and writes on Russian literature, Yiddish literature, folklore, and folkloristics. She is now working on two projects: a monograph investigating nineteenth-century short Russian and Yiddish fiction in the context of the history of listening, and an article looking at the interaction of the Russian and Jewish rhetorical traditions among early-twentieth-century revolutionaries.

Dr. Safran will be speaking about the verbal culture of Russian Jewish Revolutionaries. Admission is free, and all are welcome!
