Join us for a discussion with renowned professor of Yiddish women’s poetry, Dr. Kathryn Hellerstein. We will lift up the work of generations of women poets that were never fully given their due, including Kadya Molodowsky, Celia Dropkin, Anna Margolin, Miriam Ulinover, and Malka Heifetz Tussman.

Lecture will be in English. Dr. Hellerstein will provide handouts in Yiddish, transliteration, and her English translations.

Kathryn Hellerstein is Associate Professor of Germanic Languages and Literatures, specializing in Yiddish, and the Ruth Meltzer Director of the Jewish Studies Program at the University of Pennsylvania. A poet, translator, and scholar of Yiddish poetry, Hellerstein received her doctorate from Stanford University.
