More information

This talk will discuss the history of Adler’s reception in North America as a modernist historiographer where the integration of the biographical, the historical and the literary becomes not just a question of the genre of a work (is the trilogy modernist allegory or grounded in the historical?) but also a quality of its history of publication and reception. Julia Creet is an Associate Professor of English at York University in Toronto where she teaches memory studies, literary nonfiction and satire.
