Sava Ranisavljevic Post-Doctoral Fellow in Judeo-Spanish Studies

Ph.D. University of Manchester
Marci Freedman is a scholar of textual and intellectual history who focuses on the transmission of ideas and texts in medieval and early modern Europe. Her current project focuses on the legacy of Jewish learning and Hebrew books in post-1492 Inquisitorial Spain, and will, in part, explore the censorship of Hebrew books and Jewish authors. Other research interests include medieval travel literature, particularly Hebrew narratives. Her doctoral research focused on the transmission and reception of Benjamin of Tudela’s Book of Travels from the twelfth to seventeenth centuries. Prior to joining Northwestern in September 2018 Marci completed her Ph.D at the University of Manchester (2016) where she taught in both the History and Classics Departments.
