Ivonne Saed Participates in Jewish Voices

Ivonne Saed, English literature & writing faculty member, is one of five prominent Jewish poets and writers who will participate in Jewish Voices.

The annual event, held since 1999, will be on Tuesday, October 30, at 7 p.m. at the Oregon Jewish Museum, 1953 Kearney Street in Portland. Cost is $5; members free.

Graphic designer, photographer and writer, Ivonne Saed has extensively explored the crossroads between the visual and the textual within the humanities, both in her own professional creation as well as in teaching. She published the novel Triple crónica de un nombre (Mexico: Lectorum, 2003) and the non-fiction book Sobre Paul Auster. Autoría, distopía y textualidad (Mexico: Lectorum, 2009.) Ivonne's photographs have been shown in galleries in the United States, Mexico and Turkey. Her first documentary, Naïve, premiered in March 2011 as part of Object Stories, a Portland Art Museum project. She came to Oregon in 2003 as a Fulbright scholar-in-residence and has taught graphic design, literature and interdisciplinary courses at Universidad Iberoamericana, Chemeketa Community College and Marylhurst University, among other institutions. 

Saed will be joined by Mia Birk, Jonah Bornstein, Andrea Hollander Budy and Jonathan Schofer.

Mia Birk is the President of Alta Planning and Design, in addition to being a world-renowned expert in non-motorized transportation. Mia's book, Joyride: Pedaling Toward a Healthier Planet, tells the behind-the-scenes story of how a group of determined visionaries transformed Portland into a cycling mecca and inspired the nation.

Jonah Bornstein publishes his and others' poetry and nonfiction under the imprint Wellstone Press. He has taught poetry and creative writing at universities and workshops for 25 years. His recent collection of poems is The Art of Waking, released in 2012. His work appears in the collections and anthologies A Path through Stone, Deer Drink the Moon, and September 11, 2001: American Writers Respond.

Andrea Hollander Budy is the editor of When She Named Fire: An Anthology of Contemporary Poetry by American Women and the author of four full-length poetry collections, including House Without a Dreamer, which won the Nicholas Roerich Poetry Prize. Her poems and essays have appeared in numerous anthologies, college textbooks and literary journals such as Poetry, The Georgia Review, Shenandoah, FIELD and Creative Nonfiction.

Jonathan Schofer is a scholar of classical Jewish literature, ethics and comparative studies. He has published The Making of a Sage: A Study in Rabbinic Ethics (2005) and Confronting Vulnerability: The Body and the Divine in Rabbinic Ethics (2010), along with many articles. He has taught at DePaul University, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Harvard University. He is currently visiting associate professor of religion at Reed College.
