Title Nathaniel Deutsch:The Jewish Dark Continent.
Nathaniel Deutsch, Professor of History and Literature at the University of California, Santa Cruz will discuss his book, The Jewish Dark Continent: Life and Death in the Russian Pale of Settlement (Harvard University Press), in which he reconstructs aspiring ethnographer An-sky’s fact-finding trip through the Pale of Settlement, animating Russian Jewish life in the early 20th century. At the turn of the 20th century, more than 40 percent of the world’s Jews lived within the Russian empire, almost all in the Pale of Settlement. The Jews of the Pale created a distinctive way of life little known beyond its borders.
