Theodor Dunkelgrün is Senior Postdoctoral Researcher at Trinity College Cambridge and Assistant Professor of Jewish History at the University of Antwerp. A cultural and intellectual historian of Europe and the Mediterranean world, 1450-1900, much of his work across historical periods takes place at the intersections of Biblical scholarship and the History of the Book. He is especially interested in learned encounters between Jews, Christians and Muslims and in the ways their textual traditions and scholarly practices interact, carry over, and respond to technological innovation, from the invention of print to the invention of photography. At the centre of his research, in different historical and geographical contexts, is the Hebrew Bible: its readers, editors and collectors; its study, reception, and transmission; its material, visual and artistic histories.  Among other activities, he is developing a DH research project on the interconnected Arabic and Hebrew book cultures of Morocco.
