Call for application: Remapping Yiddishland at the Kaplan Center, Cape Town

12. Juli 2024

Via H-Net: The Kaplan Center, University of Cape Town in cooperation with Monash University and the University of Toronto invite applications for a workshop on May 26-28, 2025 in Cape Town, South Africa. The focus will be on how Yiddish speakers, writers, performers, and idealogues have grappled with the shifting centres of Yiddishland over the last century. To be invited are studies that explore marginalized regions and topics and access underexplored resources as the basis for new narratives about Yiddish migration and innovation. In order to facilitate discussion, we expect contributors to share a 3,000-4,000-word draft chapter with the other participants by May 1, 2025. Instead of traditional presentations, each author will briefly introduce their chapter for discussion.

The Kaplan Centre will cover accommodation and most meals during the workshop. We expect to provide graduate students with travel stipends.
