All welcome to our next session in 2022 with our distinguished guest Verena Kasper-Marienberg (North Carolina State University).
HALF PROFIT, HALF LOSS – NEGOTIATING JEWISH ECONOMIC LAW IN NON-JEWISH COURTROOMS
Verena Kasper-Marienberg’s research focuses on the intersection of Jewish and Christian communities in the early modern period in Europe. She is especially interested in questions of legal practice, gender relations, and socio-economic structures in early modern societies. Currently, she is completing a book about the daily life of the Frankfurt Jewish community in the 18th century as well as working on a new study on the rural Jewry of Bohemia after the 30-Years War. She has published on a number of topics like Jewish female litigation, criminal history, Jewish-Christian shared spaces, and the media (re)presentation of early modern political events.
The seminar will be held in virtual form only (at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82961863362).
Modern Jewish History Seminar in Prague is organized by the Masaryk Institute and the Institute of Contemporary History (both parts of the Czech Academy of Sciences) and the Prague Center for Jewish Studies at the Charles University.
