I started my career working on Christian-Jewish relations in the medieval Crown of Aragon with my dissertation Coping with crises: Christian-Jewish relations in Catalonia and Aragon, 1380-1391. Since then, Dana Wessell Lightfoot and I have joined our expertises in a project on the impact of various crises of the late fourteenth and early fifteenth century on Jewish women and conversas in Girona, Catalonia.
We have received an Insight Grant for that project by SSHRC (Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada) and have presented and published on our findings. We are both on research leave in 2022/23 to work on finalizing the draft of our book on that project.
