Judaic Studies pres.
CANCELLED: Global Yiddish Networks
Frankel Institute Fellows: Dov-Ber Kerler, Amy Kerner, Eli Rosenblatt, and Nick Underwood and Guest Scholar: Kathryn Hellerstein, University of Pennsylvania
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.
