Bloomsday Special: The Jewish Novel

St. Patrick's Church

James Joyce, the ultimate modernist, made Ireland’s most famous literary character, Leopold Bloom, Jewish, thus making Ireland’s most famous novel, if not a Jewish novel, one with at the very least a distinctly Dublin Jewish flavour.

Is there such a thing as the Jewish novel?

The Jewish diaspora have carved out a unique identity for themselves over the centuries, which has allowed for the creation of some truly unique voices, narratives, humour and chutzpah. Join our wonderful panel on this special day Bloomsday, celebrating Ireland’s most famous Jew, Mr Bloom, for an illuminating and engaging discussion on what constitutes the Jewish novel.
