Israel’s Memorial Day, a special talk with Ron Ben Tovim about War, Poetry and Memory @ Ulpan Bayit

War, Poerty, Memory

Ron Ben Tovim is a post-doctoral researcher focusing on online contemporary American and British post-war poetry in the aftermath of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Ron himself was a soldier in Israel’s Defense Forces during the Lebanon War.
In both his academic and artistic work, he has been dealing with questions of identity, war, grief and the use of words as a means of overcoming trauma.

This was a very special evening for us and we hope you’ll enjoy the talk as well.
