Lecture with Dina Danon, Ph.D.
"Jews Under Islam in the Modern Era"
Friday, March 1 @ 6:45PM
Congregation Bonai Shalom, Boulder

Dr. Danon will explore the Jewish experience in the lands of Islam in modern times, from the early 19th century, when these communities, dispersed across the Middle East, North Africa, and Southeastern Europe, encountered a "modernity" largely shaped by the West. Her talk will also examine how the changes of the modern era impacted traditional relations between the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities of these regions, addressing the crumbling of the Ottoman Empire, European colonialism, rising nationalism, and the founding of the State of Israel.

Dr. Danon is a Lecturer in Jewish History at the University of Colorado, Boulder. She holds a BA in History and French from the University of Pennsylvania and a Ph.D. in History from Stanford University. Her primary research interests are the Sephardi communities of the eastern Mediterranean and the history of the Ottoman Empire. Her doctoral dissertation, The Transformation of the Jewish Community of Izmir, 1847-1918, was a recipient of the Maurice and Marilyn Cohen Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship from the Foundation for Jewish Culture in 2011. Dr. Danon's teaching interests span the full range of Jewish history, with a particular focus on the Sephardi and Mizrahi communities of the Mediterranean world. Her publications include "Abraham Danon, la vie d'un maskil ottoman, 1857-1925," in Itineraires Sepharades, a translation of the 1947 Ladino "Shaavat Aniim" in The Sephardic Studies Reader, and several entries in the Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic World.
