How submissive are North African Jewish Women?

Gender and conflict through literature

How different are Moroccan-Jewish women from their mothers and grandmothers, and how do they differ from their Muslim counterparts? What are the antagonisms between Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews?

In what promises to be a fascinating lecture, Professor Lucille Cairns will examine what it means to be a North African Jewish woman as reflected in the writings of Paule Darmon and other Jewish authors.

Lucille is a Professor in the French Department, School of Modern Languages and Cultures at Durham University. She has published numerous books, articles and chapters in books, most recently on Jewish women writers in French.
