Queer Ladino: An Archival Adventure with Nesi Altaras
Hosted By: My Jewish Learning
Join My Jewish Learning for a conversation on LGBTQ Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) terminology with Nesi Altaras. This terminology developed after Spanish Jews were expelled and settled in the former Ottoman Empire. Altaras’ work has uncovered unique Ladino terminology that not only sheds light on LGBTQ presence in Turkey, but also reveals linguistic relationships between Turkey’s Jewish community and their non Jewish neighbors.
