This volume brings together a rich interdisciplinary selection of some of the best and most up-to-date research in the field of Sephardic Studies by scholars from all over the world. Covering both pre-Expulsion Iberia and the far flung Sephardi diaspora, the essays deal with social and intellectual history, literature, folklore, linguistics, musicology and art history. The volume concludes with an important discussion on education and the future of Sephardic Studies as a field. Most of the contributions in this volume are in English, and a few in French and Spanish.
