Lecture Series: "Yiddish Women Writers Reclaimed" with Professor Anita Norich
Yiddish Women Writers Reclaimed is a downloadable lecture series by Professor Anita Norich of the University of Michigan.
Women wrote poems, essays, plays, novels, and every other literary genre known to Yiddish literature. They wrote about love, family, politics, economics, class, sexuality, and the lure of the modern world and its dangers. Perhaps the most surprising thing about their writing is how little of it is known today.
In this lecture series, Professor Anita Norich of the University of Michigan will examine Yiddish poetry and prose written by women, and discuss how these women claimed a place for themselves as modern Jewish writers.
