Tuesday Talk

October 9, 2018
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Faculty House, 64 Morningside Dr., New York, NY 10027 Ivy Lounge
“Uprooting, Exile, Anchoring in my New York Poems”: Anna Frajlich, Senior Lecturer Emerita, Department of Slavic Languages Associate Faculty Member, Harriman Institute, and EPIC member, will make a bilingual presentation of her poetry. Frajlich is an award-winning poet and has been called one “of the most interesting phenomena in the contemporary Polish poetry … which “reveals deep truth about the existence of an individual entangled in the tragic fate of contemporary civilization.” (2003, Turzanski Foundation). She will place her work in the context of the 1968 forced Exodus of Jews from Poland. Frajlich will be introduced by the Harriman Institute’s Ronald Meyer, a master Slavic translator. Tuesday Talks are scheduled in Faculty House on the Morningside campus on alternate Tuesdays during the academic year. EPIC members, faculty, and invited guests speak on topics that range across the academic spectrum and also address issues of particular importance to the retired academic community. Participants can continue their discussion at lunch in the Faculty House Dining Room at a special reduced rate for EPIC members. Guests are welcome.
