Dear Members -
The recent message to YT&V members (portions appearing below), asked
if there was any interest in having a Birds of a Feather (BoF)
meeting during the upcoming IAJGS Conference in Boston.
Only two responses were received, both expressing interest.
Unfortunately, justifying the scheduling of a room and time requires
more than just a handful of attendees.
Therefore, there will be no scheduled BoF meeting for members of the
Yiddish Theatre and Vaudeville Research Group. I hope that we can get
more interest in such a meeting for future conferences.
Moderator on duty, YT&V
Previous message sent January 20:
We have an opportunity to schedule a Birds of a Feather (BoF)
get-together if there is enough interest by the YT&V membership. It
allows an opportunity to meet others interested in all aspects of
Yiddish entertainment and provides some limited time to exchange
stories and ask questions.
However, there have very few postings to the YT&V in the past year
and if there is only a limited interest in a BoF it could be delayed
for a future conference. Your opinions are requested.
Unless there is some reason to post to the entire YT&V membership,
please address any comments or suggestions directly to the moderator
