Wasserman Jewish Studies Center is pleased to announce our fall lecture:
“High Anxiety: Harold Bloom, Influence, and Sexual Politics”
Dr. David Greven
Professor of English Language and Literature, University of South Carolina
Thursday, November 8, 6:00 pm-7:00 pm, NVC 14-270
From: Professors Jessica Lang (Department of English), Andrew Sloin (Department of History) and Carina Pasquesi (Department of English)
Harold Bloom's theories of literary influence and full-throated celebration of the Western tradition have caused a critical ruckus for several decades now. Many of his critics have cried racism and sexism. With those concerns in mind, Professor Grevin argues that Bloom's work contains an undervalued significance for the study of American literature's emergence as a distinctive national voice. Thinking about issues of race, gender, and sexuality allows us to reframe influence and the canon within dynamic and shifting struggles to define an American literary character.
David Greven is Professor of English at the University of South Carolina. He publishes in the fields of nineteenth century American literature, psychoanalytic theory, and film studies. His books include Intimate Violence, published by Oxford in 2018, on Hitchcock and queer theory, and Gender Protest, on same-sex desire in antebellum writing, published in paperback by Routledge in 2016.
We hope that you’ll join us for what is sure to be a provocative talk. The event is free and open to the public.
