YIVO-Bard Winter Program on Ashkenazi Civilization 2016

The YIVO-Bard Winter Program on Ashkenazi Civilization invites students to delve into Ashkenazi Jewish life and culture during its thousand-year history in Eastern Europe and in many Diasporas. Winter Program courses explore connections between Jewish culture makers and the national, political, philosophical, and artistic identities they inhabit, illuminating the fact that Jews have always been influenced by, and influencers of, the cultures in which they’ve made temporary or permanent homes.

Courses are open to all. All classes meet at YIVO.

This year’s Keynote Address will be given on January 4 by Professor Samuel Kassow, incoming Jacob Kronhill Visiting Scholar in Jewish History.
