Simon Dubnow Institute and ASL Hold Workshop

On May 8 and May 9, ASL joined the Simon Dubnow Institute for Jewish History and Culture in hosting two events on Jewish-American Literature:

Prof. Julian Levinson of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, held a lecture titled “Between Heine and Whitman. Yiddish Poets in America and the Art of Revision” on Tuesday night. This interesting talk was followed by a workshop the next day: Here, Prof. Levinson discussed Jewish-American writers and culture of the post-war period. About 30 students and colleagues from both institutes took the opportunity to actively participate in these exciting events.
