Announcing the Brayndl Prize
In honor of the digitization of the YIVO Yiddish Folk Song Project, which was designed by Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett (aka Brayndl), Inside the Yiddish Folksong announces an annual prize for an essay that analyzes the performance and/or transmission of the Yiddish folksong.
The YYFP blazed new trails in this field 50 years ago. Rising interest in the topic inspired our group to encourage new thinking with this prize.
Essays should be 6,000–10,000 words and be submitted by May 1, 2023. The Brayndl Prize consists of a $100 cash award, an historic Jewish cookbook from the BKG collection, and publication at yiddishfolksong.com or in a peer-reviewed journal.
