Places and Spaces, Sights and Sounds in the N.E. Alexander Library

Please join us at the 11th annual Norman E. Alexander Lecture in Jewish Studies! All are welcome to this virtual event, but registration is required.

This year’s event focuses on researchers studying space and place using resources from the collections. Francesca Bregoli (Queen’s College) will discuss her research in the archive of a cross-Mediterranean family of hatmakers between Livorno and Tunisia; Maarten Hell (University of Amsterdam) will discuss his work on the multi-ethnic Vlooienburg neighborhood of Amsterdam between 1600-1800; and Lea Schäfer (University of Duesseldorf) will describe her work mapping the variations in the Yiddish language using the Language and Culture Archive of Ashkenazic Jewry.
