This event is cancelled.

While it originated in Central and Eastern Europe, Yiddish has traveled throughout the world. Centers of Yiddish cultural activity have emerged in different places at different times, and speakers and texts have circulated among these centers, creating a rare case of a nationless language with a global reach. In this symposium, participants explore the global networks of Yiddish. Research will be presented on the presence of Yiddish in places such as Argentina, France, China, the Soviet Union, and the Caribbean.

The front entrance of Rackham, located on East Washington, is accessible by stairs and ramp. There are elevators on both the east and wends ends of the lobby. The amphitheater is on the fourth floor.
