Sasha Senderovich (University of Washington in Seattle)

Sasha Senderovich will discuss his new book, "How the Soviet Jew Was Made", which offers a close reading of postrevolutionary Yiddish and Russian-language literature and film that recasts the Soviet Jew as a novel cultural figure: an ambivalent character navigating between the Jewish past and Bolshevik modernity. Senderovich urges us to see the Soviet Jew anew, as not only a member of a minority group, but also a particular kind of liminal being.
