Studies in Yiddish is the only scholarly series in English that is dedicated to Yiddish, a transnational language whose interesting, if sometimes tragic, history spans more than a thousand years. Its high and low literary and non-literary texts and practices have been of central importance not only to Jewish existence and history but also to the wider cultural and creative life in Central and Eastern Europe, Israel and the New World. The series regularly publishes the proceedings of the International Mendel Friedman Conference, which is convened every two years at the University of Oxford. In addition, the series includes monographs and edited volumes on all aspects of Yiddish language and culture, and proposals for new publications are welcomed.
This series does not have a formal Editorial Committee, but we are advised by:
- Professor Gennady Estraikh, New York University
- Dr Kerstin Hoge, St Hilda’s College, Oxford
- Professor Mikhail Krutikov, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
