With our speaker recovering well after a faintly Schulzean misadventure, we are delighted to invite you all to this rescheduled edition of the event “Life on the Margins: Bruno Schulz and the Hasidic Kabbalah” on Tuesday 9 June 2015 in the William Mong Hall, Sidney Sussex College, at 6pm.

Eminent Polish philosopher Professor Agata Bielik-Robson discusses the works of the Polish-Jewish writer Bruno Schulz (1892-1942) in the context of Hasidism and the Kabbalah.

Bruno Schulz was one of the most innovative European writers of the interwar period. His fantastical stories transformed the everyday life of a small Polish-Jewish-Ukrainian provincial town into a splendid realm of the imagination.

Agata Bielik-Robson is one of Poland’s best-known public intellectuals. She is Professor of Jewish Studies at the University of Nottingham and a member of the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology at the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.

This talk is part of the Slavonic Studies series.
