Andrea Gondos’s scholarship has focused on knowledge organization and transmission reflected in early modern study guides in the field of Kabbalah. Her first monograph titled, “Kabbalah in Print: The Study and Popularization of Jewish Mysticism in Early Modernity” examines the literary structure and cultural impact of kabbalistic reference tools and their role in mediating and popularizing Kabbalah in early modernity. The book will appear in 2020 with SUNY Press. Currently, she is a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in the Emmy Noether Research Group on Knowledge Circulation examining questions of sexuality, gender, and emotions in magical recipe texts produced in early modern Ashkenaz. Her recent publications include a chapter titled, “New Kabbalistic Genres and Their Readers in Early Modern Europe,” in Connecting Histories: Jews and Their Others in Early Modern Europe (Philadelphia: Pennsylvania UP, 2019).
