The goal of this project is to initiate and implement research and other academic activities that contribute to research on the Jewish communities of the Balkans and Ladino culture.

During the 2016–2017 academic year Prof. Rozen has continued her writing of two books on which she has been working for the past several years: 1) A History of the Jews of Salonika under Greek Rule (1912–1943), and 2) the second volume of her trilogy on the Jews of Istanbul during the Ottoman Period (1566–1808).
