Project

During my stay at the Faber I plan to finalize my PhD thesis. The subject matter of the thesis is Jewish motifs in Jorge Luis Borges’s works. Based on this great Argentinian writer’s short stories and poems I do some research to see what role these motifs play in Borges’s works and how they can be interpreted.
