May 2021, Tuesday

Is writing the only way to narrate the story of the past? Sephardic Trajectories, edited by Kerem Tınaz and Oscar Aguirre-Mandujano, brings together scholars of Sephardic and Ottoman history to discuss the role of family archives and new media in narrating the Ottoman Sephardic past in the US. This edited volume is inspired by the Sephardic Studies Collection at the University of Washington, which has aimed to digitize, preserve, and make available countless family heirlooms, papers, and personal objects that Ottoman Sephardic Jews in Seattle brought with them as they migrated to the United States.
