Bryan Kirschen: Ladino in the Twenty-First Century (Zoom only)
January 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
In partnership with the Jewish Community Library
Ladino (also known as Judeo-Spanish or Judezmo) refers to the variety of Spanish that developed among Jews who were expelled from Spain in 1492 and subsequently settled primarily in the Ottoman Empire. In this presentation Bryan Kirschen will provide an overview of the development of Ladino and its decline in use, and then focus on the resurgence of interest and domains of use during the past two decades. He will explain recent initiatives that seek to preserve and sustain the language.
Sunday, January 28 @ 2pm, on Zoom
