Taught by Tanya Yakovleva
She studied Comparative Literature, Classical, Slavic, Jewish, and Media Studies at the universities of Kharkiv, Regensburg, Bari, and San Diego. Tanya received her PhD in Russian and Jewish Studies from the University of Regensburg in 2019 and since then she has been teaching for YAAANA.
In this course taught entirely in Yiddish, we will read and discuss texts and biographies of Yiddish Modernists in Eastern Europe of the 1920-1930s such as Dovid Bergelson, Dovid Hofshteyn, Perets Markish, Leyb Kvitko, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Kadya Molodovsky, Rokhl Korn, and Khane Levin. Grammar to be repeated will be drawn from the texts. You will learn new literary terms and have an understanding of the main processes and movements in the development of Yiddish Modernism.
