About this product
- DescriptionFocusing on Eastern and Central Europe before WWII, this collection explores various genres of ethliterature across temporal, geographical, and ideological borders as sites of Jewish identity formation and dissemination. Challenging the assumption of cultural uniformity among Ashkenazi Jews, the contributors consider how ethgraphic literature defines Jews and Jewishness, the political context of Jewish ethgraphy, and the question of audience, readers, and listeners. With contributions from leading scholars and an appendix of translated historical ethgraphies, this volume presents vivid case studies across linguistic and disciplinary divides, revealing a rich textual history that throws the complexity and diversity of a people into sharp relief.
- Author BiographyAndreas Kilcher is a professor at ETH Zurich and author of The Linguistic Theory of Kabbalah as an Aesthetical Paradigm and Dictionary of German-Jewish Literature. Gabriella Safran is the Eva Chernov Lokey Professor in Jewish Studies at Stanford University and author of Wandering Soul: The Dybbuk's Creator, S. An-sky.
