For over than three centuries the majority of East European Jews lived in numerous shtetlekh, small market towns that served as centers of local trade and commerce. The shtetl, with its distinct character, became the primary setting of nineteenth-century Yiddish literature. It also left a lasting impact on Jewish imagination and historical memory. The course will explore complex interactions between reality and imagination, as the shtetl mythology has gradually become a key feature of Jewish "usable past," particularly in the United States. We will look into a variety of historical sources, memoirs, works of fiction and literary criticism, as well as examine visual representations of the shtetl in art and film. A reading knowledge of one of the following languages: Russian, Polish, German, Yiddish, or Hebrew is desirable. The course will combine lectures, group discussions, and student presentations.
