Federica Francesconi is assistant professor of history and director of the Judaic studies program at the University at Albany, SUNY. She researches the history of Jews in early modern Italy, focusing on the politics and dynamics of ghetto life. While at the Katz Center, she will analyze Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and sub-Saharan women in early modern Venice and Livorno with an emphasis on the ways that spatial contexts defined the lives of mistresses, servants, and slaves of that period.

Francesconi received her PhD from the University of Haifa and has previously held fellowships at the Katz Center, the University of Oxford, and UCLA. She is the associate editor and book review editor of the journal Jewish History.
