The authors review the graduate student conference they convened at New York University, entitled "Yiddish / Jewish Cultures: Literature, History, Thought in Eastern European Diasporas". In addition to discussing themes of discussion from the conference, the authors contend that their conference can be seen as a model of the ways in which departmental support can provide opportunities for leadership and for unique interdisciplinary collaboration.
