BEING JEWISH, BECOMING JEWISH
a conversation with CARLO GINZBURG


THE JOY GOTTESMAN UNGERLEIDER LECTURE

Carlo Ginzburg, son of Leone and Natalia Ginzburg, is a historian. In his latest book, Threads and Traces: True False Fictive, Ginzburg offers a collection of essays weaving autobiography with scholarship and critical commentary on the problematic conventions of historical study.

Carlo Ginzburg will discuss the Jewish and literary heritage passed down by his mother, the writer Natalia Ginzburg, author of an autobiography of a kind, Family Sayings.

In conversation with Paul Holdengraber, Carlo Ginzburg will discuss his ever-evolving relationship between being Jewish, becoming Jewish, and his work.

The annual Joy Gottesman Ungerleider Lecture explores themes represented in the holdings of The New York Public Library's Dorot Jewish Division. This series has been made possible by a generous grant from the Dorot Foundation.
