Saturday, August 3, 2024 28 Tammuz 5784

12:30 PM - 1:45 PMKnesset Israel Library

Is Yiddish experiencing a renaissance or is it in decline? What is gained and lost by associating Yiddish with a diasporist sensibility? How are virtual Yiddishlands popping up in unexpected places, and what can they tell us about contemporary Jewish culture?

Justin Cammy is Professor of Jewish Studies and World Literatures at Smith College. Cammy is a longtime faculty member of both the Steiner Summer Yiddish Program at Tel Aviv University and the Naomi Prawer Kadar International Yiddish Summer Program at Tel Aviv University. His critical edition and translation of From the Vilna Ghetto to Nuremberg by Yiddish poet Sutzkever won the 2022 Leviant Prize in Yiddish Studies from the Modern Language Association.
