We’re about to head into a winter publishing hafsoke. Before we power down our (virtual) presses, we wanted to leave you with some reading material, and some other ideas of ways you can engage with In geveb during our brief absence. We’ll be back in mid-January; until then, we’ll be curled up by the fire with hot chocolate and ugly khanike sweaters.
READ FROM OUR ARCHIVES
This fall we published many exciting pieces, including a special issue on Debora Vogel which includes scholarship, poetry, translation, and visual art; a review of Golan Y. Moskowitz’s “engrossing” Wild Visionary: Maurice Sendak in Queer Jewish Context; an exploration of sexual harassment in Yiddish literature; and an unconventional interview with Jewish lesbian icon Eve Adams.
But that’s just the past few months. Our archives are rich with reading material to keep you occupied during the holidays, from Yiddish accounts of last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests to a scholar-artist’s reflection on bookmaking to a review of a Pulitzer Prize-nominated Yiddish art song album. We’re sure you’ll find something to your liking.
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU
We recently put out a loyt di leyeners call. We want to know what you, our dear readers, think about what we publish here at In geveb. Take the survey here.
WRITE FOR US
We are actively seeking submissions to our Pedagogy section. If you have an idea or the spark of an idea about an interesting lens through which to think about teaching Yiddish, our Pedagogy Editor wants to hear your ideas. She can be reached at [email protected].
We are also looking for more briv funem arkhiv pieces. These are very short essays describing one document or other archival find and its significance. You can send these to our blog editor at [email protected]
And, as always, we are open to submissions across the journal, from academic articles to interviews with Yiddish culture-makers to reviews of Yiddish literary translations to listicles to formats we haven’t even thought of yet. If you have ideas, we want to hear them. Read our submission guidelines here.
