Women Yiddish Poets in Eastern Europe
Kathryn Hellerstein is Professor of Germanic Languages and Literatures at the University of Pennsylvania. Her current research examines Jewish American women poets, from the nineteenth century through the twenty-first century, whose writings are contextualized by their other work as translators of poetry, liturgists, and anthologists.
Hellerstein received her PhD in English and American Literature from Stanford University. She has previously held fellowships at the Center for Jewish History at Harvard University and the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives.
