A Politics by Other Means

In this episode, we speak with Marc Caplan about Yiddish literature. Marc is the Brownstone Visiting Professor of Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College and the author of How Strange the Change: Language, Temporality, and Narrative Form in Peripheral Modernisms and Yiddish Writers in Weimar Berlin: A Fugitive Modernism. Marc talks about the processes of modernization for Yiddish-speaking Jews in Eastern Europe and demonstrates how Yiddish literature can be understood as a form of postcolonial expression.
