Ada Rapaport-Albert Seminar Series on Hasidic Yiddish: The Contemporary Hasidic Yiddish research group at University College London and the UCL Institute of Jewish Studies are delighted to announce the launch of an online seminar series on Contemporary Hasidic Yiddish language. The seminar series is dedicated to the memory of UCL Professor Ada Rapoport-Albert, a world-leading scholar of the history of the Hasidic movement. The series is devoted to the exploration of all facets of contemporary and historical Hasidic Yiddish worldwide. After an inaugural round-table discussion on 'Perspectives on Hasidic Yiddish Language' we start our year-long series with monthly academic lectures held online at 6pm (UK local time) on the first (or sometimes second) Tuesday of every month. For enquiries, please write to hasidic.yiddish@ucl.ac.uk.
