Interconnectivity and Entanglements
Starting from the premise that all Jewish periodicals are the material heirs of a unique textual tradition, the authors of this volume -researchers from Germany, Austria, Israel, Belarus, the UK, and the US – have distilled here the fruits of their interactive discussions. Their inquiry sets out to scrutinize the history of the Ashkenazy Jewish press as a history of the visions it advocated. It transcends the conventional approach which focusses on the context of the nation state. Thus, the reader can trace the journey of Jewish periodicals as they migrated seamlessly across national borders and languages, and hence discover geopolitical and generational entanglements that have so far been largely neglected.
