HBI Seminar Series – Fresh Voices: Jewish Women Writers from North America (Spring 2016)

In a globalizing, multicultural age, the Jewish experience is arguably even less monolithic than it has been historically, and today the profound impact of gender on Jewish identity and Jewish experience is recognized more than it has often been in earlier times. Fiction and memoir writing--novels, short stories, and graphic novels--enters imaginatively into multiples modes of being, and is a particularly fruitful way to explore the diversity of the contemporary Jewish experience.

North American Jewish women writers of fiction and memoir, and international ​academics and scholars whose work analyzes North American fiction that explores Jewishness and gender, are invited to apply to this three-month residency program.

Application deadline: Thursday, May 14, 2015
