Conference Announcement and Call for Presentations
The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) Archives is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for its 2019 fellowship program. In 2019, 6 fellowships will be awarded to senior scholars, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and independent researchers to conduct research in the JDC Archives, either in New York or in Jerusalem.
It’s a pleasure to announce the publication of my book, The Captive Sea: Slavery, Communication, and Commerce in Early Modern Spain and the Mediterraneanin the University of Pennsylvania Press. The book—based on records composed by Iberian and Maghribi Christians, Jews, and Muslims—examines the connected histories of early modern Spain, Ottoman Algiers, and Morocco, and by extension the entangled histories of Muslim and Christian captives.
