Reading Yiddish Texts, with Yael Chaver
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.
Prerequisite: Students should have completed at least a year of college-level Yiddish language or the equivalent
