"Lyric Testimony: Anthropomorphism and Survival in Post-Holocaust
Writing"

Faculty/Student Seminar

 

 

Co-Sponsored by the UCLA Department of Comparative Literature

 

 

Sara guyer

(University of Wisconsin-Madison)


Sara Guyer is Assistant Professor of English and Jewish Studies at the
Universiasty of Wisconsin-Madison, where she teaches courses in
Romanticism, Literary Theory, and Post-Holocaust Literature.  Professor
Guyer's current projects include Romanticism after Auschwitz (Stanford
UP, forthcoming) which analyzes the rhetoric of survival in romantic and
post-Holocaust writing. Through close readings of highly canonical texts
(including Frankenstein, Wordsworth's Preface to Lyrical Ballads, and
Resnais's Night and Fog) and texts that remain under-read (including
Wordsworth's sonnets "To Sleep," Celan's translations and Antelme's The
Human Race) the book reveals how one of the most insistently
anti-romantic discourses, post-Holocaust testimony, relies upon the
figures of speech and writing central to conventional accounts of
romanticism. The book demonstrates that this recurrence compels a
thorough rethinking of romanticism and its rhetoric.

 

 

Event is open to the public. 

Advance registration is required.

Eitan fishbane

(Jewish Theological Seminary)


Eitan P. Fishbane is assistant professor in the Department of Jewish
Philosophy at The Jewish Theological Seminary. Prior to his appointment,
Dr. Fishbane served on the faculties of Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion in Los Angeles and Carleton College in Northfield,
Minnesota. 

Dr. Fishbane's research focuses on the history and literature of Jewish
mysticism, with a primary specialization in medieval Kabbalah and an
active interest in later currents-particularly Hasidic spirituality. Dr.
Fishbane's scholarship has been published in several prestigious
academic journals including: "Tears of Disclosure: The Role of Weeping
in Zoharic Narrative" (Journal of Jewish Thought and Philosophy);
"Mystical Contemplation and the Limits of the Mind: The Case of Sheqel
ha-Qodesh" (Jewish Quarterly Review); "Authority, Tradition, and the
Creation of Meaning in Medieval Kabbalah: Isaac of Acre's Illumination
of the Eyes" (Journal of the American Academy of Religion); "Jewish
Mystical Hermeneutics: On the Work of Moshe Idel" (Journal of Religion);
and "Wisdom, Balance, Healing: Reflections on Mind and Body in an Early
Hasidic Text" (Healing and the Jewish Imagination). 

Presently, Dr. Fishbane is completing a book titled As Light Before
Dawn: The Inner World of a Medieval Kabbalist, which focuses on the
Kabbalistic writings and thought of fourteenth-century mystic Isaac ben
Samuel of Akko. A second book underway, to be called Constructions of
the Self in Jewish Mystical Literature, explores the manner in which
medieval and early modern Kabbalists envisioned the formation and
attainment of the ideal life and how they conceptualized the core
dimensions of religious identity and personhood.
