Between "Mameloshn" and "Muttersprache": Yiddish and German in Dialogue PDF Print E-mail

The relationship between German and Yiddish has been one of affinity and dissonance, attraction and repulsion, kinship and boundaries. This international conference will explore the historical, literary, and cultural dimensions of the dialogue between these languages.

The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars currently engaged in research that examines the complex relationship between these languages and cultures, hopefully culminating in a publication on the subject. As an international conference, most of the sessions will be in English, with the possibility of a panel in Hebrew.
