The Tobacco Monopoly and the Rise of the Modern Jewish Intellectual in the Habsburg Monarchy

Dr. Louise Hecht's talk explores the link between the organization of the tobacco monopoly by Jewish leaseholders and their network of Jewish subcontractors during the eighteenth century with the rise of modern and secular intellectual elite in the nineteenth century. It contests the traditional approach of intellectual history that would look at the first generation of modern Jewish intellectuals as dropouts or graduates from traditional institutions of higher Jewish learning (Yeshivot). {Will appear in FYI on Apr 22, 2013
