Don't be afraid to reach out to campus mental health services. Your first year away will not always be an easy ride, and you need to take care of yourself.

Oh my gosh, yes. And her wealth of knowledge in the history of Yiddish New York.

Definitely been inspired to read more Rajzel Zychlinski for my research! I love how Perl gave us space to reflect after reading through and translating each poem. They knew that a language could never be just grammar alone.

I had similar experiences this summer at YIVO! Studying Yiddish felt like a way of reclaiming something that was lost, or at best dormant, in my family history. My grandfather's a native Yiddish speaker, but I knew very little beyond what would appear on Seinfeld.

Moving cities/countries and starting my PhD. And just finished an intensive Yiddish course. But beyond that, not much is happening. :P You?

Oh, I've never even encountered DEVONthink! I'll check it out now. I've used Zotero's "store a copy of the PDF with the citation" tool before, but after too much of that the program grew quite slow.

Have you found a good alternative for large-scale projects? About to start ramping up my dissertation research and while I normally use Zotero, I'm always on the hunt for something more efficient!

Yes!!! There's a wide range of literature out there, and you want to hook as many people as possible. Gotta diversify your approaches.

's right. "Never again" doesn't mean "never again to only us." It our moral responsibility as Jews to call a concentration camp a concentration camp.
