Mid-twentieth century Italian Jewish migration
In my presentation I talked about my dissertation topic, the history of 20th-century Italian Jewish migration. My talk included a methodological section, where I presented the type of history I am researching, how I plan to contribute to the literature, and some information on how I carry out my research. In a content-based section, I then delved into the source material on Italian Jewish migrants, suggesting some vignettes of my findings, and raising the kinds of arguments that will eventually make up my thesis.
