Ilaria Pavan is Assistant Professor in Modern History at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa. Her main research interest is the history of Italian Jews and Italian antisemitism in the 19th and 20th centuries, with a particular focus on the Fascist and post–Fascist period. She published several books on these topics such as "Il podestà ebreo. La storia di Renzo Ravenna tra fascismo e leggi razziali" (Laterza 2006) and, with M. Al Kalak, "Un’altra fede. Le case dei catecumeni in area estense. 1583–1938" (Olschki 2013). She is the editor in chief of the journal "Contemporanea. XIX and XX Century History Review." She is currently working on a book exploring the relations between the development of forms of transitional justice and the politics of Jewish retributions in the post-Shoah era.
