    The classical narrative has medieval European Jews as almost universally engaged in money lending and, through their key role in the royal economy, as the dominant bankers of the age.

Focusing on the period from the early 19th century until today, this five-session course looks beyond simplifying narratives of deep ethnic hatred and tourist imaginaries, exploring instead the national and regional dynamics in the context of the location at the overlapping European, Russian and Ottoman/Turkish spheres of influence.
