Agata Bielik-Robson at Sidney

Polish Philosopher to speak on the works of Bruno Schulz.

One of Poland's best-known public intellectuals is coming to Sidney, to discuss the works of Polish-Jewish writer Bruno Schulz (1892-1942). Professor Agata Bielik-Robson will deliver the lecture Life on the Margins: Bruno Schulz and the Hasidic Kabbalah at the next Cambridge Polish Studies event, taking place in the Mong Hall on 9 June.

Bruno Schulz was one of the most innovative European writers of the interwar period. His fantastical stories transformed the everyday life of a small Polish-Jewish-Ukrainian provincial town into a splendid realm of the imagination. Professor Bielik-Robson's talk considers Schulz's work in the context of Hasidism and the Kabbalah.

The lecture will take place at 6pm on 9 June. To register for a free ticket, please follow this link to the booking page.
