Dear readers: you're going to want to put February 10 on your calendar. There's going to be a day-long conference celebrating the publication of the first volume in the Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization. Volume 10 is the first to be published and covers the years 1973-2005.
The conference, Jews and Words: A Celebration of Jewish Writing, Language, and Expression, will be held at the Center for Jewish History and is co-presented with YIVO. It's going to be quite the affair, featuring some of the most important names in Jewish scholarship today, journalists, novelists and..... me!
My panel is the last of the day, Renewing Our Diasporas: Incorporating the European Past into Twenty-First Century Jewish Cultures. I'll be in conversation with Antony Polonsky, Barbara Mann and YIVO executive director Jonathan Brent. It's some impressive company there. I'm gonna try my best to make it seem like I belong.
