12/22/20

Professor Harriet Murav's book, David Bergelson’s Strange New World: Untimeliness and Futurity, published by Indiana University Press, was awarded honorable mention for the Modern Language Association's Fenia and Yaakov Leviant Memorial Prize in Yiddish Studies. The prize is awarded each even-numbered year and is given alternately to an outstanding translation of a Yiddish literary work and to an outstanding scholarly work in English in the field of Yiddish.

The committee’s citation for Prof. Murav’s book reads: "Harriet Murav’s David Bergelson’s Strange New World: Untimeliness and Futurity is a magisterial study of one of the most important modernist writers of the twentieth century. Murav places Bergelson in the context of such major theorists as Henri Bergson, Walter Benjamin, and Sigmund Freud, thereby illuminating some of the most pressing political, philosophical, and cultural concerns of his day and ours. A model of interdisciplinary study, Murav’s book offers new interpretations of Bergelson’s fiction and of the questions about temporality and memory that animate his writing."

Congratulations to Professor Murav on this noteworthy recognition of her fine scholarship!
