Тирош. Труды по иудаике, славистике, ориенталистике
In the 19th volume of the annual “Tirosh. Jewish, Slavic & Oriental Studies”, we are presenting articles by young scholars from Belarus, Israel, France, Poland and Russia, who work in the fields of History, Biblical and Religious Studies, Cultural and Literary Studies, as well as ethnographers and anthropologists. The content of the current issue bespeaks the importance of the topics where Jewish Studies meet Slavic and Oriental Studies: classical Jewish texts; contacts, interplay and collisions between Jewish, Christian and Islamic cultures; Jewish fiction and non-fiction in the 19-20 centuries; history of the Eastern-European Jewry in the modern period, and the Jewish identity today and in historical perspective.
