ACADEMIC PARCOUR:

Cynthia Gabbay completed her PhD, "Julio Cortázar's Lyricism: Intertextuality and the Literary 'Other'”, at the Department of Romance and Latin American Studies under the supervision of Prof. Ruth Fine and Niall Binns (UCM), at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2012. The dissertation was awarded the “Raul Kirtchuk Award for Research Academic Excellence in Latin American Studies”. In this project, she analyzes the intertextuality arising from Cortázar’s poetry, which had till then gone uninvestigated. The research addresses the dialogue between Cortázar’s literature and a large number of writers and poets from different eras, especially, French and Latin American modern poetry and existentialism. 

Dr. Gabbay subsequently carried out postdoctoral research at the Harry S. Truman Institute (2011-2013) at the Hebrew University, the University of Haifa (2013-2015), and Ben Gurion University of the Negev (2015-2018). Between 2015 and 2018, she also worked as a Senior Research Associate of the ERC project "Apartheid-Stops" directed by Prof. Louise Bethlehem, in the fields of Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies at the Hebrew University. In this context she studied the poetry of the Cuban Nancy Morejón. Dr. Gabbay arrived in Germany in 2018 as an Alexander von Humboldt Experienced Researcher at  the Department of Romance Languages at the Freie Universität Berlin where she worked on feminist Hispanic Jewish memoirs of the Spanish Civil war.

Her last posticion was as a Le Studium - Institute for Advanced Studies Loire Valley research fellow working at the laboratory REMELICE at the University of Orleans, France with the project "Translation after the Shoah: Towards an Epistemic Recovery of the Jewish Poetic Archive".

At present, she is a DFG researcher at the Institute of Cultural History and Theory, at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, working on her project "The Jewish Library in Argentina: Carlos M. Grünberg's Cosmopolitan Poetry and Polyglot Translation".She is also co-editor of the scientific journal Lingua Franca (SHARP), member of the Board of Directors of the Latin American Jewish Studies Association, and coordinator of Simania: Salon Readings (LAJSA).

Titel der Dissertation
"La lírica de Julio Cortázar: Intertextualidad y Otredad literaria" (2012)
Zusammenfassung der Dissertation

La littérature de Julio Cortázar est mondialement reconnue grâce à ses romans d’avant-garde (comme, par exemple, Marelle, 62, maquette à monter ou L’examen) et ses récits néo-fantastiques (Fin du jeu, Tous les feux le feu). Cependant, sa poésie n’a pas reçu la même attention de la part des lecteurs ni des chercheurs. Cette thèse doctorale analyse sa poésie (Presencia, Salvo el crepúsculo), le poème dramatique (Los Reyes) et ses essais lyriques (Teoría del túnel et Imagen de John Keats). L’analyse est centrée sur le phénomène intertextuel dans la littérature de Cortázar et, en particulier, sur la relation entre lyrique et intertextualité qui jusqu’aujourd’hui passa inaperçue.

Cette étude s’applique à examiner le dialogue entre la littérature de Cortázar, en particulier sa « préhistoire littéraire » (1938-1956) et les littératures d’autres écrivains et poètes, comme celles de Stéphane Mallarmé, du Symbolisme français, des existentialismes français et allemand et des poètes argentins, latino-américains et français contemporains. L’analyse des textes se concentre sur plusieurs formes lyriques, comme le sonnet, le verse libre, le poème dramatique et l’essai lyrique.

Un des aspects les plus importants dans la lyrique de Cortázar est l’élément ontologique qui apparait comme sujet de sa poésie et de ses essais ainsi qu’il détermine son système littéraire. Selon la poétique de Cortázar, la littérature, en général, et la poésie, en particulier, s’inscrivent dans les rapports culturels comme des actions portant une valeur éthique. Ainsi, le dialogue intertextuel ne représente pas uniquement un simple phénomène poétique mais il est plutôt un ars poetica relevant du rôle du poète et de la poésie par rapport à la culture et la société. Du point de vue de Cortázar, l’existence du poète en tant qu’entité dynamique et caméléonesque est nécessaire pour l’entretien métaphysique de la communauté.

Cortázar adopta la théorie de John Keats connue comme “Negative Capacity” (capacité négative) pour souligner une poétique caméléonesque (concept emprunté aussi à Keats) et qui définit le Poète comme l’être par excellence qui fusionne avec d’autres êtres dans le but de devenir un témoin vivant de l’existence des autres, en se déplaçant constamment du sujet parlant vers l’intériorité d’autrui. Ce phénomène propose donc un dépassement ontologique par lequel les concepts traditionnels d’être et identité sont drastiquement révisés. En effet, Cortázar ouvre ainsi un riche dialogue avec les différentes perspectives existentialistes.

Ma thèse principale propose de voir dans la position de Cortázar une synthèse des théories existentialistes de Martin Heidegger et de Jean-Paul Sartre (suivant Teoría del túnel). De plus, j’identifie une relation étroite entre la poétique caméléonesque de Cortázar et le phénomène intertextuel. Cortázar développe un ensemble d’idées théoriques autour du concept d’êtres participatifs, en partant tout d’abord des théories anthropologiques de Lucien Lévy-Bruhl, il met en marche une projection de ce concept sur la théorie poétique en la superposant avec un concept parallèle de Stéphane Mallarmé proposé dans « Le Livre, instrument spirituel ». C’est à travers cette démarche qu’il propose la méthode intertextuelle comme action caméléonesque. Cette action produit la fusion des textes. Cortázar projette ainsi une essentialisation ontologique sur la structure littéraire. Aussi, puisque l’ontologie caméléonesque de Cortázar est étroitement liée à une recherche éthique, le phénomène intertextuel apparait comme l’outil qui met en marche l’action éthique. Ma recherche a tracé la relation méta-poétique entre le caméléonisme et le vampirisme cortazariens et a identifié leur origine, coïncidences et différences dans l’œuvre de l’auteur.

Enfin, cette étude propose un modèle rhizomique pour l’analyse intertextuelle. Elle développe une série de concepts établissant une continuation méthodologique des théories de Mikhaïl Bachtine, Julia Kristeva, Gérard Genette et Michael Riffaterre. Elle identifie l’élément fondamental du processus intertextuel sous le nom de « lien réminiscent » (nexo reminiscente). Le lien réminiscent est le syntagme (sème ou phonème) qui lie hypotexte et hypertexte en établissant entre les deux une relation dialogique. Ce terme propose d’affiner le concept “signes doubles” introduit par Michael Riffaterre, en identifiant la possibilité d'une multiplicité d'hypotextes impliqués dans la relation dialogique à travers un même lien réminiscent. A partir de cet élément fondamental, la thèse propose un model innovant d’analyse intertextuelle.

1. Jewish Imaginaries of the Spanish Civil War: In Search of Poetic Justice und 2. Neo-Djudezmo poetry and Jewish Translation

1. Jewish Imaginaries of the Spanish Civil War: In Search of Poetic Justice: The book inaugurates a new field of research in Literary and Jewish Studies at the intersection of Jewish history and the internationalist cultural phenomenon emerging from the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939), the Republican exile, and the Shoah. The study presents an open corpus and proposes the definition of Jewish textualities based on the entanglement of multiple Jewish poetic modes. It explores the Jewish imaginaries of the Spanish Civil War in the context of cultural phenomena such as antisemitism, orientalism, and philo-Sephardism. It also offers perspectives on memorial and post-memorial Jewish literatures triggered by transhistorical imagination. Through the examination of a variety of narrative fiction and non-fiction, memoir, poetry, epistles, journalism, and music in Yiddish, Spanish, French, German, and English, it unveils non-canonic authors across the West. The study questions Western cosmopolitanism and focuses on the condition of Jewish writers as producers of epistemic disobedience, a characteristic of Mosaic enthusiasm in seeking reparation and emancipation. It also underlines the Jewish cultural phenomenon in the West that worked as a counter-culture when adopting chameleonic survival tactics in order to disguise under Western cosmopolitanism. The book argues that Western cosmopolitanism, in its imitation of the Jewish diasporic condition through cultural appropriation, perpetuates the subalternity of the Jewish cultures. In response, the book revindicates the polyglossia of the Jewish cultures and literatures in the context of genocide and epistemicide when recognizing them as providers of poetic justice in the Jewish query for emancipation.

2. Neo-Djudezmo poetry and Jewish Translation:

In the background of Jewish epistemicide and linguicide, and, among them, that of the Sephardic culture during the Shoah, the project interrogates the announced agony of the Judeo-Spanish language and the end of an era of native minor languages. It addresses the field of the new djudezmo poetry in Latin America, as well as the role played by metalinguistic devices such as self-translation and the glossary in the process of its production. The article focuses on the case studies of Myriam Moscona (Mexico) and Denise León (Argentina)'s poetry. The poetry collection Dibaxu (1994) by Juan Gelman is identified not only as the main hypotext of these works but also as an epistemic event – an intertextual producer of new knowledge – in Ibero-American literature that plays the role of a decolonial artifact because it advocates to revisit, through the choice of ‘the language of otherness’, the Hispanic colonialist/Christianizing and expulsionist ethos. In relation to the metalinguistic mechanisms identified when publishing poetry in neo-Djudezmo and in comparison with Gelman’s proposal of interstitial reading, I evaluate the concept of “twinned texts” suggested by J. Walsh Hokenson and M. Munson when thinking about bilingual literatures. Furthermore, I examine the translinguistic manifestations of these texts, verifying its effects on the gender divergence they raise. Finally, I postulate that, by resisting modernity, through its dissidence, poetry in neo-Djudezmo produces a poetic avant-garde.

Jewish Imaginaries of the Spanish Civil War inaugurates a new field of research in literary and Jewish studies at the intersection of Jewish history and the internationalist cultural phenomenon emerging from the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939), the Republican exile, and the Shoah. With the Spanish Civil War as a point of departure, this volume proposes a definition of Jewish textualities based on the entanglement of multiple poetic modes. Through the examination of a variety of narrative fiction and non-fiction, memoir, poetry, epistles, journalism, and music in Yiddish, Spanish, French, German, and English, these essays unveil non-canonic authors across the West and explore these works in the context of antisemitism, orientalism, and philo-Sephardism, among other cultural phenomena.

Jewish writings from the war have much to tell about the encounter between old traditions and new experimentations, framed by urgency, migration, and messianic hope. They offer perspectives on memorial and post-memorial literatures triggered by transhistorical imagination, and many were written against the grain of canonic literature, where subtle forms of dissidence, manifested through language, structure, sound, and thought, sought to tune with the anti-fascist fight. This book revindicates the polyglossia of Jewish cultures and literatures in the context of genocide and epistemicide and proposes to remember the cultural phenomena produced by the Spanish Civil War, demanding a new understanding of the cosmopolitan imaginaries in Jewish literature.
