Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

World War I engendered an enormous cultural production in European Literatures. The war meant a profound historical and cultural caesura especially for Jews in Central and Eastern Europe (Russia, Austria-Hungary) since it marked their transition from imperial settings to national conditions. On the basis of selected writers and texts such as Simon Dubnov, Shimon An-Ski, Dovid Bergelson, Isaak Babel and Lev Nussimbaum, writing in tongues as diverse as Yiddish, Russian, Polish, or German, we will discuss the impact of historical events and their repercussions on literature, e.g. persecution, pogroms, issues such as law and justice, as well as aesthetical positions and transformations.
