About the Thane Rosenbaum Papers

The Thane Rosenbaum Papers are a unique archive representing the literary world of Jewish fiction writing. The papers provide many insights into the creative endeavors that emerge not only from the act of writing, but also the academic achievements in law and culture that are manifested in essays, letters, and public speaking events of a Jewish-American intellectual. The donation of these papers to the University of Miami Libraries deepens its engagement with the culturally rich milieu of the South Florida community.
For questions about the event, please contact the UM Libraries
