Jeffrey Veidlinger, Professor of Jewish Studies and History, Alvin H. Rosenfeld Chair in Jewish Studies, Indiana University in Bloomington
For the last decade, the speaker has been conducting a major ethnographic study of surviving shtetls in Eastern Europe, compiling some 900 hours of videotaped oral history, primarily in Yiddish, that will soon be made into a documentary. Each of these talks, sponsored by the Clara Sumpf Yiddish Lecture series, will speak to what this research reveals about the history of Russian and Yiddish speaking Jews.
