Trauma studies is an interdisciplinary field exploring not only the psychological effects of traumatic experiences, but also the problem of representing these experiences in language. This panel explores the ways Yiddish culture responded to two definitive instances of collective trauma: the Holocaust and the Russian Civil War. Presenters will discuss Yiddish-language responses to these events and explore how they have shaped individual and cultural identities.

There is both an accessible elevator and gender-neutral restroom on the first and second floor. If you have a disability that requires an accommodation, contact judaicstudies@umich.edu or 734-763-9047.
