CONTRIBUTOR

Eve Romm

Eve Romm, a recent Yale graduate living in the Boston area, focused on Renaissance poetry and literary translation as an undergraduate but fell in love with Yiddish before her senior year. She is particularly fascinated by Hasidic and devotional writings, the history of the book, and the ways religious practice is mediated by language. In addition to Yiddish, she reads and translates from Hebrew, French, and Ancient Greek, and can often be found elbows-deep in elaborate baking projects.
