Salem State University World Languages and Cultures professor Michele C. Dávila Gonçalves will join Ilan Stavans, the Lewis-Sebring Professor of Humanities and Latin American and Latino Culture at Amherst College, to discuss his work and travels. From “crypto-Jews” forced into exile by the Spanish Inquisition to Jewish gauchos in Argentina to the Ashkenazi who found refuge from the Holocaust in Latin America, Stavans’s work sheds light on the multifaceted Jewish communities in the region.

Ilan Stavans is the Lewis-Sebring Professor of Humanities and Latin American and Latino Culture at Amherst College. His books include “On Borrowed Words: A Memoir of Language,” “The Seventh Heaven: Travels through Jewish Latin America,” and “How Yiddish Changed America and How America Changed Yiddish.” Translated into 20 languages, his work has been adapted for film, TV, radio, and theater.

This event will take place in person in the Petrowski Room in Marsh Hall (Harrington Campus) at Salem State University and live on Zoom.

This event is co-sponsored by the World Languages and Cultures Department at Salem State University, JCC of the North Shore, CJP, and the Cummings Foundation.
