Prof. Naomi Sokoloff‘s forthcoming book, What We Talk About When We Talk About Hebrew (and What It Means to Americans), co-edited with Prof. Nancy Berg, will present ten essays on the past, present, and future of the Hebrew language both in the United States and globally.
The volume collects the writings of contributors to the Stroum Center’s 2016 Hebrew and the Humanities Symposium, which invited Hebrew experts from around the world to share their thoughts on the language. Read some of their ideas about Hebrew online now.
What We Talk About When We Talk About Hebrew will be available in August of 2018. Learn more about the book on the Near Eastern Languages & Civilization website.
