Iris Idelson-Shein presents at the "Translating the Americas" workshop
Translating the Americas is a two-day workshop dedicated to the theory and practice of translation with a specific focus on Jewish writing from the early modern period. It brings together scholars from North and South America, Europe, and the Middle East. We will examine and discuss letters and texts that functioned as bridges—“translations”—between languages, religions, Empires, the Old World, and the New World. The workshop will take place via Zoom on January 25 and 26. For details see: https://jimes.wustl.edu/events/translating-americas.
