Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements
Date: Aug. 22, 2018

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text to victor.bers at yale.edu as plain text (no
HTML, other  coding, or attachments) and write MENDELE PERSONALS in the
subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has posted
the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: Translations of Niger--which essays?
From: Dovid Schlitt

I am currently at work on a translation project of the writing of Shmuel
Niger. I am finishing up a new translation of Yidishe literatur un di
lezerin, and I am searching for my next project. My question to the list
is, if you could see any of Niger's essays translated into English, which
would it be?

I have considered translating some of Niger's writing on Asch and/or
Perets, but even here winnowing down his massive oeuvre has been a
challenge. If folks could recommend specific pieces (whether about
individual writers or on more general topics) for inclusion in my project,
I would be very grateful. And if there are scholars you'd recommend I reach
out to for additional help, I would be grateful for that advice as well.

A hartiskn dank,
Dovid Schlitt
