Research Query: Scholarship on the night & darkness in Ashkenazi culture?

Dear Colleagues,

I am seeking scholarship (historical, ethnographic, religious, literary, etc.) on the night and darkness in Ashkenazi culture, particularly folk beliefs.  I am especially interested in the late Russian Empire & early USSR, but would welcome references to broader cultural traditions.

If you are aware of any such works (books, chapters, articles), I will be very grateful for any pointers!

Thanks so much, in advance.
