Date(s) - Thursday, January 7, 2021
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


This presentation will explore how Verne’s Yiddish translators reshaped the writer, at once domesticating him to fit the norms of Jewish readership, while at the same time using Verne to advance a message of modernization, science, and empire to their supposedly backward and superstitious readers. This program is co-sponsored with the Yiddish Book Center.
