Congratulations to Sean Wyer, Lecturer in Italian at Balliol College, on his new publication Gourmet and the Ghetto: The 'Foodification' of Rome's Historic Jewish Quarter in Gastronomica: The Journal for Food Studies. His research asks how Rome's former Ghetto has been transformed into a food destination in the twenty-first century, with new restaurants serving kosher interpretations of dishes from carbonara to sushi. 

You can also hear him talking about his work in Rome's former Ghetto on Eat This Podcast
