Amanda Siegel

A former Fulbright scholar to Argentina and National Yiddish Book Center translation fellow, Amanda Siegel focuses on modern Jewish literature of the Americas with an emphasis on Latin-American Yiddish literature and translation studies. She focuses on literature as a site of identity negotiation, especially as it relates to theories of translation that interrogate critical categories and expand the discourse on canonicity. She has also taught Yiddish language courses at Lehrhaus Judaica and UC Berkeley.
