Ann Brener (Library of Congress) and Isabelle Levy (Columbia University) will present the life and work of Immanuel of Rome. Immanuel of Rome wrote in Hebrew and Italian, held Dante as model and mocked any notion of identity. Brener and Levy will address the poet’s life and legacy, with a particular focus on his censorship.
