Professor Elizabeth Macaulay-Lewis will present new research on the remarkable courtyard houses of the Farhi and other important Sephardic families in late 18th/early 19th century Damascus. Her analysis of architecture and décor offers a lens into the Damascene Jewish community and its interaction with Ottoman culture.
