Stanley Mirvis is assistant professor of history in the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies and the Harold and Jean Grossman Chair of Jewish Studies. His research focuses on the social history of Jews in the early modern Atlantic—the “Western Sephardic Diaspora”—dealing largely with issues of Diasporic and creole identity. He contributed the historical essays to photographer Wyatt Gallery’s Jewish Treasures of the Caribbean (Schiffer Press, 2016) and is the co-editor of From Catalonia to the Caribbean: The Sephardic Orbit from Medieval to Modern Times (Brill, 2018), a collection of essays in honor of his doctoral advisor, Jane. S. Gerber. His forthcoming monograph is titled The Jews of Eighteenth-Century Jamaica: A Testamentary History of a Diaspora in Transition (Yale University Press, 2019), a social historical study of hundreds of last will and testaments exploring the relationship between colonial and metropolitan Jews and the nature of Jewish creolization in the British West Indies.
