Establishing a Bibliographyfor Sephardic Studies 127 Establishing a Bibliography for Sephardic Studies George K. Zucker University ofNorthern Iowa An introductory course in the area ofSephardic Studies needs a textbook. But no book will cover all the material the instructor may want to include, and there will certainly be lacunae in areas for students' individual research projects. Myparticularcase involved a course which wouldbe especially attractive to history majors, so there was a wide variety ofpotential topics for student research: linguistics, international commerce, politics, historical and literary studies. Consequently, there were many-and widely varied-areas on which the students needed to have sources. What follows is a bibliography ofEnglish-language sources meant to supply some ofthose lacks. While it is extensive, this bibliography does not pretend to be complete. With the marvels of computers and merge files, however, I would be happy to keep adding entries. I will be most grateful to receive additional titles. Adatto, Emma and G. W. Umphrey. "Linguistic Archaisms ofthe Seattle Sephardim." Hispania 19 (1936): 255-264. Agard, Frederick B.
