Description:

“Fiction-Activism: Why I Wrote a Novel about Anti-Israelism on Campus (rather than a Non-fiction Book)” Dr. Nora Gold is a writer, activist, and the creator and editor of the prestigious online literary journal, JewishFiction.net. Her first book, Marrow and Other Stories, won a Canadian Jewish Book Award and was praised by Alice Munro. Her more recent book, Fields of Exile, is the first novel about anti-Israelism on campus, and it has received enthusiastic praise from Cynthia Ozick, Ruth Wisse, Irwin Cotler, Phyllis Chesler, Steve Stern, Thane Rosenbaum, Nava Semel, Naim Kattan, and Alice Shalvi. Dr. Gold, for ten years a tenured professor, is now the Writer-in-Residence and an Associate Scholar at the Centre for Women’s Studies in Education (CWSE) at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto, where she also coordinates the Wonderful Women Writers Series. In addition, Gold has co-founded three Canadian Zionist organizations and she holds both Canadian and Israeli citizenship. For more details, visit noragold.com. This special event is part of the 31st Annual Meeting of the Association for Israel Studies, hosted by the Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.
