Description

Queer Yiddishkeit—a cluster of works in literature, journalism, film and performance art—constitutes one of the most revealing and provocative developments in contemporary Jewish culture.  Jeffrey Schandler, professor of Jewish Studies at Rutgers University, will examine several examples of Queer Yiddish culture, especially performances that link Yiddish with drag. He will also consider what the practices of Queer Yiddishkeit suggest for the theorizing of Yiddish now, at a crucial juncture in the language’s history.
