Jessica Kirzane, Collaborative Digital Open Access Publishing and Community Building: In Geveb: A Journal of Yiddish Studies
In Geveb: A Journal of Yiddish Studies was founded six years ago by a group of then-graduate students to be a central location for the field of Yiddish Studies. It is a free, open-access digital platform without academic affiliation, with a mission to extend the boundaries of the field while fostering community within the field. The journal publishes not only peer reviewed articles but also literary translations, pedagogical resources, and a culture-oriented blog. In Geveb’s Editor-in-chief Jessica Kirzane will discuss how the flexibility of the journal’s born-digital platform and its independent funding model open up new arenas for scholarly publishing and collaboration. Her talk will focus especially on the pedagogy section of the journal, which reorients the field of Yiddish studies toward the kind of work many of its practitioners perform day in and day out.
