CFP: Between Written and Oral Traditions: Revealing the Literary Tradition of the Spoken Voice (Chicago, March 16-19, 2023)

This seminar aims to offer new perspectives on the relations and tensions between oral and written traditions in Jewish modernity and beyond. In studying modern Jewish literature and thought, scholars often attend to reading practices of the written texts, considering literary genres such as novels, short stories, poetry, diaries, and correspondences. The written text, however, stands almost always in some relation to oral traditions and the voices that speak it.
