Aviya Kushner - "Wolf Lamb Bomb" - Adriana X. Jacobs

Aviya Kushner will discuss Wolf Lamb Bomb. She will be joined in conversation by Adriana X. Jacobs.

Presented in partnership with Guild Literary Complex

About the book: Aviya Kushner's debut poetry collection, Wolf Lamb Bomb, revives and reimagines the Book of Isaiah in an intimate conversation between woman and prophet. In the aftermath of September 11th, ongoing violence in the Middle East, and resurgent antisemitism, Kushner reflects on a Biblical understanding of humanity and justice. Wolf Lamb Bomb wonders equally about our relationship with an inherited past and our desire to understand the precarious present. These poems place the prophet Isaiah in the position of poet, crooner, and rival as they search for a guide in poetry and in life.

About the author: Aviya Kushner grew up in a Hebrew-speaking home in New York. She is the author of The Grammar of God: A Journey into the Words and Worlds of the Bible (Spiegel & Grau / Penguin Random House), which was a National Jewish Book Award Finalist, a Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature Finalist, and one of Publishers Weekly‘s Top 10 Religion Stories of the year, as well as the poetry chapbook Eve and All the Wrong Men (Dancing Girl Press, 2019). Kushner is The Forward‘s language columnist, and previously wrote a travel column for The International Jerusalem Post. She is MFA director in creative writing at Columbia College Chicago, a founding faculty member at the Randolph College MFA program, and a member of The Third Coast Translators Collective. Her work has been supported by the Howard Foundation, the Illinois Arts Council, and the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture.

About the interlocutor: Adriana X. Jacobs is Associate Professor of Modern Hebrew Literature at the University of Oxford and author of Strange Cocktail: Translation and the Making of Modern Hebrew Poetry (2018, University of Michigan Press). Her translations of Hebrew poetry have appeared in Gulf Coast, Anomaly, World Literature Today, North American Review, The Ilanot Review, among others, as well as in the collection Women’s Hebrew Poetry on American Shores: Poems by Anne Kleiman and Annabelle Farmelant (Wayne State UP, 2016). Her translation of Vaan Nguyen’s The Truffle Eye was published this year by Zephyr Press. She is currently translating Tahel Frosh’s Avarice with the support of a NEA Translation Grant.

UChicago 2021 Summer Institute for Educators: Global and Local Inequities: ...

This multi-day virtual conference for educators brings together award-winning journalists supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and digital educational resources created by Pulitzer Center and UChicago to highlight global and local inequalities that COVID-19 has exacerbated. From the quelling of Hong Kong’s protest movement to the healthcare crisis among undocumented migrants in Bosnia-Herzegovina and issues of governance in the Arab world, conference sessions will explore the far-reaching impacts of the global pandemic on pre-existing disparities across the world.

The kick-off event features a special panel discussion (9:45 a.m. -12:00 p.m.) with journalists Kristen Schorsch, Mariah Woelfel, and María Inés Zamudio from WBEZ on their project, Tracking the Vaccine: Eye on Equity in Chicago and Illinois. Since the start of the pandemic, COVID-19 has killed more than twice as many Black Chicagoans as white residents. The positivity rate for Latinos is more than double that of the next-highest racial group. And despite those data, white residents have gotten more sought-after coronavirus tests than either group. The project explores whether the groups that were disproportionately hit by the contagion end up receiving their share. This community-powered project combines explanatory, utility-based content with accountability journalism to report on vaccines and vaccine distribution in the Chicago communities that have been most hurt by the pandemic, centering community voices throughout the reporting.

The panel will be followed by a workshop (1:00 - 3:10 p.m.) on Leveraging Journalism Skills and COVID-19 Reporting in the Classroom with the Pulitzer Center.

The 2021 Summer Institute for Educators is co-sponsored by the University of Chicago Center for East Asian Studies, Center for East European and Russian/Eurasian Studies, and Center for Middle Eastern Studies, and it is presented in partnership with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. These series are made possible through generous support from Title VI National Resource Center grants from the United States Department of Education.
