Reading Yiddish Texts — Fall 2019

In this course, we will read and discuss selections of Yiddish prose and poetry from the 19th and 20th centuries. The class will focus on comprehension, based not only on the lexicon and syntax of the Yiddish language, but also on the cultural contexts in which the texts are embedded. Given the relatively late prevalence of standardized spelling in Yiddish, some texts will be studied in their 19th and early 20th-century versions to provide practice and develop confidence in decoding non-standard orthography. Prerequisite: Students should have completed at least a year of college-level Yiddish language or the equivalent
