We will explore the complexities of modern Yiddish culture through works of fiction, journalism, scholarship, film and arts. The course will focus on the development of modern Yiddish culture in Eastern Europe and North America from the late 19th century through the 20th century, but also pay attention to other centers in Palestine/Israel, South America and South Africa. The readings will include both classical and less known authors, representing a broad variety of aesthetic, ideological and religious preferences.
