Rae Dalven is known for her valuable contribution to the historiography of the Romaniote Jewry of Ioannina. However, this Romaniote-born American academic once declared that she was “born for the theater.” This unknown side of Dalven as a playwrighter today comes to light through a research and study by professor Adam Goldwyn. Dalven’s plays that touch on themes such as the dowry in the Greek-Jewish community, the Romaniote immigrant experience and the daily struggles for civil rights in the USA, or even the Resistance of the 1940s in Greece – all through leading female characters – are presented this year for the first time in Greece and to the English-language audience, through a series of four small bilingual volumes (Isnafi Publications).
The event will be hosted by the Department of Social Anthropology and History of the University of the Aegean and will be coordinated by the historian Achilleas Fotakis. The editor of the books Adam Goldwyn, professor of History at North Dakota University, the Adi Liraz, an artist who works and researches her heritage in the Romaniote community of Yanina and the head of the publishing series IsnafiRomanioti*, and finally Anna Garty-Bacola, a member of the Romaniote community in Israel and relative of Rae Dalven, will take part in the presentation. The event will be held in English.
