Summary

Looking to pick apart the complexity of the Venice Ghetto as a concrete space and as a global metaphor? Join young scholars in testing Walter Benjamin’s algorithm– “The past can be seized only as an image which flashes up at the instant when it can be recognized and is never seen again.” This workshop will examine and analyze the intense and complicated history of this region, exploring political, economic, and social elements of this misunderstood modern Jewish space.

General Information

Both branches of the Veneto Institute are located in the San Marco district of Venice, offering scholars volumes upon volumes of sixteenth and seventeenth century works. This institute is dedicated to promoting culture and research both in Italy and to international visitors.
