Jewish experience in post-World War II Brazil
Talk by Eleanor Stanford, recipients of the "Jews in the Americas" fellowship
A poet and essayist, Stanford earned her MFA in creative writing at the University of Virginia, where she also held a Henry Hoyns fellowship. Her highly praised work scrutinizes anthropological, historical, and literary questions with scholarly and literary creativity. She is currently working on a novel on the Jewish experience in post-World War II Brazil and during her tenure at UF, she explores the library holdings, especially newspapers and biographical sources, to gain further inspiration and deeper understanding of what it meant to be raised as a Jew and live a Jewish life in Brazil of the 1950s and 1960s.
