The GTU's Richard S. Dinner Center for Jewish Studies is hosting an event celebrating the publication of Dr. Naomi Seidman's long-awaited work, The Marriage Plot Or, How Jews Fell in Love with Love, and with Literature (Stanford University Press). Dr. Seidman will be speaking about her latest book in conversation with Stanford University's Dr. Gabriella Safran at a CJS event on October 13 at 5:30 pm in the GTU's Dinner Board Room, 2400 Ridge Rd., Berkeley.
"Once again, Naomi Seidman has given us a beautifully written book that is equally illuminating about traditional texts and contemporary performances. The Marriage Plot is a foundational work for anyone interested in Jewish literary and cultural studies, in questions about gender and translation, and in how Jews 'fell in love with love' in the mid-19th century."
—Anita Norich, University of Michigan
