Event description

Description

David Brauner is Professor of Contemporary Literature at The University of Reading and Executive Co-editor of Philip Roth Studies.

In this talk Professor Brauner will discuss the relationship between comedy and Jewishness in contemporary fiction. Taking in a wide range of authors from both sides of the Atlantic, including Philip Roth and Howard Jacobson, the talk will feature plenty of Jewish jokes and will consider why Jewish humour is so central to the work of many of the most famous Jewish authors of the last fifty years.
