Summary:
From the late 19th century, radical changes in European society have given rise to modernist movements in the arts and philosophy. Although Yiddish is often associated with religion, conservatism and folksiness, Yiddish authors and artists have been part of the cutting edge of Western culture. Scholars of Yiddish literature and culture will cast a light on Yiddish modernist literature and culture.
