Description: <p>Through a Ukrainian Looking Glass: Dovid Hofshteyn’s Soviet Yiddish Translations of Taras Shevchenko: Ukrainian and Jewish literatures have long been bound by a shared history and geography, and similarly estranged relationships to empire. The two literary traditions also influenced each other in form and content. In the 1930s, the Soviet Yiddish poet Dovid Hofshteyn published several volumes of his translations of the Ukrainian Romantic Poet, Taras Shevchenko. In this talk, drawn from her recent book, <em>Songs in Dark Times</em>, Professor Glaser, will discuss the important role of Ukrainian literature to Soviet Yiddish culture.</p>
