About the event
Stanley Kubrick is generally acknowledged as one of the world's great directors. Yet few critics or scholars have considered how he emerged from a unique and vibrant cultural milieu: the New York Jewish intelligentsia. In this talk, Nathan Abrams reexamines the director's work in the context of his ethnic and cultural origins. He explores Kubrick's fraught relationship with his Jewish identity and his reluctance to be pegged as an ethnic director, manifesting in his removal of Jewish references and characters from stories he adapted.
Nathan Abrams, is a Professor in Film at Bangor University. He is also the lead director for the Centre for Film, Television and Screen Studies and co-convenes the British Jewish Contemporary Cultures network. He lectures, writes and broadcasts widely (in English and Welsh) on British and American popular culture, history film and intellectual culture.
