The Jeremy Zwelling Lecture

Description
Golems and Goblins and Dybbuks, Oh My! The Monstrous in Jewish Children's Literature

Speaker: Dr. Jodi Eichler-Levine, Lehigh University

This talk engages with fantastic monstrosity as it bursts forth in literature geared towards young people, with particular attention to the work of Eric Kimmel, Maurice Sendak, and David Wisniewski. Reading American Jewish children's literature with an eye for darkness shows us how anxiety over past traumas and future uncertainties is projected onto the imagined bodies of children and the spaces they inhabit.
