"Semi(o)te Xts: Reading Jewishness Between the Text" was a one-day symposium/workshop on Jewishness and poetics broadly construed. Poets and media artists read/performed their work and engaged in critical discussion about the permutations and fluidities of Jewish texts and how they situate themselves (or not) in this loose matrix.
