As German is to the Germans: The Yiddishism of Khayim Zhitlovski (1865–1943)
Mar 16 2012


Joshua Price, Yale University

Based on a critical translation of six of Khayim Zhitlovski's essays, this talk explores the evolution of Zhitlovski's program for secular Yiddish culture before and after Czernowitz, his radical plan for American Jewry, and his approach towards translation in theory and practice.
