The Wandering Woman in the Jewish Boy
“The Wandering Woman in the Jewish Boy: Gender, Antisemitism, and the English City”
A Talk by Kathy Lavezzo, Associate Professor,
Department of English, University of Iowa
Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at 4:30 p.m.
Professor Kathy Lavezzo specializes in medieval literary studies with special attention to issues of community, nationhood and social hierarchy; cultural geography and medieval cartography; Christian-Jewish relations; economy and trade; race and ethnicity; and gender and sexuality. Her most recent book, The Accommodated Jew: English Antisemitism from Bede to Milton (Cornell University Press, 2016), understands the mapping of Jews in English texts as richly responsive to the appearance of a secular and market-driven urban society in a Christian milieu. Her scholarship has been supported by a Frankel Institute Fellowship at the University of Michigan and a Solmsen Fellowship at the Institute for Research in the Humanities, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
