Episode 16: {farvos} ?מאַמע-לשון אין דער אַקאַדעמיע | Mamaloshn Academy? by Sandra Fox

Post-recording smiles.

Does "mamaloshn" exist in academia? Is the line between the personal and the professional too blurry when it comes to Yiddish Studies? Are academics part of the future of spoken Yiddish, or a different story entirely? Why should researchers of Yiddish actually speak Yiddish?

A dank Miriam Trinh for leading the conversation, and Miriam Borden, Yeshua Tolle, Gabriela Scherlis, Tanja Yakovleva, and Anastasiya Krachkovska for putting this together!
