Caplan Marc Dr. 1.jpgDr. Caplan is the Zelda and Myer Tandetnik Professor in Yiddish Language, Literature, and Culture at Johns Hopkins University.

Dr. Caplan earned his Ph.D. in comparative literature from New York University. His primary interest as a scholar is to place the study of Yiddish literature in comparative contexts. His next book-length project will explore Yiddish literature written in Weimar Germany, considered in comparison with contemporaneous German literature, theater, and film. In addition to his academic commitments to the study of Yiddish literature, Dr. Caplan writes a regular column in Yiddish on popular culture for the journal Afn shvel.
