Страна: США

Город: Los Angeles

Тезисы до: 31.12.2014

Даты: 17.09.15 — 19.09.15

Е-мейл Оргкомитета: ullmann@usc.edu

Организаторы: International Feuchtwanger Society (IFS)


Hosted by the Feuchtwanger Memorial Library of the USC Libraries, the conference will also feature programs and events developed in collaboration with USC’s Max Kade Institute for Austrian-German-Swiss Studies, USC’s Casden Institute for the Study of the Jewish Role in American Life, Villa Aurora, and other institutions in the Los Angeles area.

The conference will explore Lion Feuchtwanger’s Jewish identity, his family background, and the Jewish milieus he belonged to in Germany, France, and Southern California. We will emphasize the intersections of German and Jewish identities and ask how they changed with the rise of the Nazis and the experience of living in exile.  We will also devote attention to Feuchtwanger's knowledge of Jewish sources and the connections to Judaism that ran through his life and work. A particular focus will be on new research concerning Jewish themes in Feuchtwanger’s works (and in the works of his brothers and other emigrants). Furthermore, the conference organizers invite papers that deal more broadly with emigration to Palestine/Israel and the reception of Feuchtwanger's work by the makers of Jewish and Hebrew culture.  Proposals for papers on other topics related to the conference's main theme are also welcome.
