The Latest in Yiddish Studies in English: 2022

Elena Hoffenberg

INTRODUCTION

Each year we are pleased to present our annu­al effort to gath­er togeth­er the lat­est pub­li­ca­tions rel­e­vant to Yid­dish Stud­ies in Eng­lish. Gath­er­ing these mate­ri­als allows us to draw atten­tion to the newest schol­ar­ship in our field(s) and account for growth and trends in the schol­ar­ship. The schol­ar­ship on this list is orga­nized by for­mat in the fol­low­ing cat­e­gories: books, book chap­ters, spe­cial issues, jour­nal arti­cles, and dis­ser­ta­tions. Each entry is fol­lowed by a link to access the mate­r­i­al online. 

While Eng­lish is far from the only lan­guage of Yid­dish schol­ar­ship, we are pleased that this bib­li­og­ra­phy of Eng­lish-lan­guage works fea­tures schol­ars from the glob­al reach of Yid­dish Stud­ies. If you are inter­est­ed in com­pil­ing a sim­i­lar list for schol­ar­ship pub­lished in anoth­er lan­guage, we encour­age you to reach out to us. Please also con­tact us if you have any sug­ges­tions for addi­tions to the cur­rent bibliography.
