Summary:
"The workshop will treat the Traditional Eastern European Jewish Book, 1500-1900, by focusing on three principle types: Rabbinic and Hasidic books, and those for women. Sessions will survey each category, analyzing their subjects, forms, and social and cultural roles, and will highlight the printing, reception history, and cultural/social significance of one central book for each type: the Talmud, the Tze'ena U're'ena, and Shivhei haBesht."--Workshop prospectus, on the website of the Jewish Studies Program at the University of Pennsylvania.
