The Carolina Center for Jewish Studies hosts: MAGDA TETER, professor of history and director of the Jewish and Israel Studies program at Wesleyan University, will explore how the small minority of Jews in Europe played key – and often understudied – roles in social, economic, and cultural life in the period from the Renaissance and the Reformation to the French Revolution. This lecture is the keynote address at the Carolina symposium on Early Modern Europe and the Jews: A History of Mutual Impact.
