Funny, They Don't Look Jewish: Confusing Converts in Medieval Spain
Dwayne Carpenter is a professor of Hispanic studies at Boston College, specializing in medieval Spanish literature and in interreligious relations of that time period. His lecture—about the blurring of social and religious boundaries between Sephardic Jews, Christians, and Muslims in medieval Spain—is part of a series of inaugural events for the Jewish studies program at Boston College, of which Carpenter is a founding codirector.
Carpenter is introduced by Maxim D. Shrayer, chair of the department of Slavic and Eastern languages at Boston College and founding codirector, with Carpenter, of the Jewish Studies Program.
