Federica Francesconi on Books and Censorship in 17th-cent. Jewish Culture (Cherpack)

Federica Francesconi (SUNY, Albany), who is currently a fellow at the Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies, will deliver a talk entitled "Books and Readers in the Early-Modern Italian Jewish Home." The talk is closely related to her forthcoming book Invisible Enlighteners: Modenese Jewry from Renaissance to Emancipation (University of Pennsylvania Press).

While at the Katz Center, she is studying Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and sub-Saharan women in early modern Venice and Livorno with an emphasis on the ways that spatial contexts defined the lives of mistresses, servants, and slaves of that period.
