Reading Jewish Women: Marginality and Modernization in Nineteenth-Century Eastern European Jewish Society

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Several years ago I had the good fortune to meet Iris Parush, and I asked how she, a scholar of Hebrew literature known best for her interest in canon formation, turned to the topic of women readers in Eastern Europe. She explained that it was her work on the writer and critic David Frischmann that piqued her interest in the topic. The emotional and contradictory rhetoric of this refined thinker led Parush to embark on an enormous and important research project.
