Rediscovering the Lost Literature of Unconventional Jewish Women

Join scholars Lori Harrison-Kahan and Jessica Kirzane as they share their journeys to recover, republish, and translate lost literary works by influential Jewish American women writers from the early twentieth century. Lori and Jessica will introduce three fascinating women: Yiddish writer Miriam Karpilove, journalist and suffragist Miriam Michelson, and novelist Emma Wolf. They will discuss these writers’ unconventional lives and literary careers, exploring how their works—now back in print after a century of obscurity—speak to issues of gender, sex, religion, and activism that we continue to grapple with today.
