Join us for a presentation by Omri Asscher, a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Nazarian Center for Israel Studies at the University of California - Los Angeles.

This talk will analyze the ideological aspects of the reception of Jewish-American literature in the Israeli literary discourse, primarily in the 1960s and 1970s. It will map the trends underlying the Israeli approach to translated works by major North American authors such as Saul Bellow, Philip Roth, Bernard Malamud and Mordecai Richler, who were often perceived as representative of Jewish American culture and life.
