An Anatomy of Allegory: Writing, Revelation, and the Body in Arnold Schoenberg's Moses und Aron

Join us as we examine the uses and strategies of allegory as encountered in Arnold Shoenberg’s abandoned opera, Moses und Aron. All are welcome, and there will be a reception to follow.

Marc Caplan is a native of Louisiana and a graduate of Yale University. Since receiving his Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from New York University in 2003 he has held appointments at Indiana University, the University of Pennsylvania, Harvard University, the Johns Hopkins University, Universität Konstanz (Germany), and the Center for Jewish History in New York City. His book, How Strange the Change: Language, Temporality, and Narrative Form in Peripheral Modernisms, a comparison of 19th-century Yiddish literature with the postcolonial African novel, was published in 2011 by Stanford University Press. Currently, he is a Research Fellow at the Frankel Institute for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Michigan, where he is completing a book on Jewish modernism and German modernity in Weimar-era Berlin.
