Office Location: TBA, Room-TBA

She continues to teach and lecture to academic and public interest audiences about the cultural and literary traditions of Eastern European Jewry and the flowering of that legacy in more recent times. In spring 2008 she presented “The Power of the Proverb” to the International Resources Center at the Queensborough Public Library, and in 2009 a lecture entitled “Loshn un Shteyger” (Language and Lifestyle) to a broad array of participants in a four-day EPYC conference at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. Her recent publications include “The Unknown Folk Poet—A Lamentation on the Holocaust,” an analysis of the hitherto unknown and unpublished poetry of Felix Horn, a survivor who describes for the first time, in verse, the destruction of Mogielnica and his personal saga in Vol. CXII of Die Zukunft, a 112-year-old literary Yiddish journal (the oldest extant to this day). She also conducted a week of advanced classes in Yiddish language and literature (in Yiddish) and focused on the 150th birthday of Sholem Aleichem for the Jewish Cultural Experience at Circle Lodge,Sylvan Lake, NY.
