Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
A thoughtful review of Nora Gold’s Fields of Exile, which you’ve heard about here before.
Interesting call: “For this special issue of Prooftexts on Jewish Literature/World Literature, we seek papers that address Jewish literary multilingualism, translation, and circulation. Essays should combine theoretical and methodological concerns with readings of Jewish-language texts to illustrate the productive intersections of Jewish literature with the discourse on world literature.”
On the Lilith blog, Talia Lavin writes “On Mothers, Sisters, Narrative and War.”
“The interdisciplinary symposium ‘Global Yiddish Culture, 1938 – 1948’ invites historians, literary scholars, sociologists, cinema and theatre scholars to think about the nature of Yiddish culture that developed during this difficult period in Jewish history.”
Finally, I’m sad to say that this poem of mine, “Questions for the Critics,” is once again relevant.
