Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies has invited internationally renowned historian Carlo Ginzburg to reflect on his pioneering research in conversation with historian Francesca Trivellato of Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study. The discussion will touch on the relationship between micro-history and global history, the relevance of Ginzburg's work for the study of the Jews and marginalized others, the intersections between his life and his work, and the nature of the historian's craft, among other topics that have been illumined by Ginzburg's fecund and capacious intellect.
