The ZC is delighted to welcome Professor Frances Malino, the Sophia Moses Robison Professor of Jewish Studies and History Emerita at Wellesley College.
Drawing from thousands of letters rescued at the end of World War II, Frances Malino will explore the lives of Jewish women teaching in a network of schools extending from Tetouan in Morocco to Teheran in Iran. Her presentation shines a light on facets of Jewish history that are often understudied, and in the process deepens our understanding of 19th and early 20th century France and the experiences of colonized peoples.
