Digital Workshop, March 2021

1930s Feuilletons: Salonica and Berlin

You are invited to attend the second in a series of online workshops that explores the relationship between the feuilleton and modern Jewish cultures. These workshops, taking place in fall 2020 and spring 2021, hope to shed light on the interaction between translation and multilingual feuilleton texts as they arise in certain national and linguistic contexts and travel, often through translation, to others often worlds apart. For those unfamiliar with the project: these workshops are part of the larger, ongoing project to chart the historical, cultural, geographical, and textual development of Jewish feuilletons and feuilletonists across the globe.
