Der Workshop will Zirkulationswege und Netzwerke der Moderne im östlichen Europa und in Skandinavien erkunden. Die Kernidee ist, das traditionelle Großnarrativ, welches die kulturelle Moderne vor allem mit den klassischen westlichen Metropolen wie Wien, Berlin, London oder Paris verbindet, zu verabschieden. Der Workshop soll insofern ein Plädoyer für eine nicht hegemonial westlich dominierte, differentielle Neukartierung der wissenskulturellen Landschaft der Moderne in Europa sein.
I am looking for ways to tell whether a Jewish book whose title page says it was printed in Eastern Europe in the 1800s was actually printed then or is a later photo-offset reproduction. I posted this query previously and received some helpful answers but was also told that my question was not clear. Here is an expanded version with photos to clarify what I am talking about. https://justinjaronlewis.wordpress.com/category/research/ ("Jewish Book Questions").
Is there a searchable electronic database with a good selection of Hasidic books?
I often use the Bar-Ilan Responsa collection but its Hasidic content is limited. I recently was told about Ma'agarim; it is an amazing resource but also seems to have very little Hasidic material. Otzar HaHochma has a lot of Hasidic books but doing a search for specific words or phrases seems cumbersome. My thanks for any suggestions!
