The Marketplace of Marriage in the Late Ottoman Sephardi World

At the weekly Ruth Meltzer Seminars, Katz Center fellows share their research with Penn and regional faculty in an intellectually rigorous workshop setting.

Speaker

Dina Danon

SUNY, Binghamton

Dina Danon is an assistant professor of Judaic studies at Binghamton University. While her teaching interests span the full range of Jewish history, she focuses on the Sephardi and Mizrahi communities of the Mediterranean world. Currently, she is researching the nature, function, and historical significance of the marriage marketplace in the Sephardi world during the late Ottoman period.

Danon received her PhD from Stanford University and was recently selected as one of six emerging scholars to participate in the Paula E. Hyman Mentorship Program of the Association for Jewish Studies.
