Professor Danon's primary research interests are the Sephardi communities of the eastern Mediterranean and the history of the Ottoman Empire. Her doctoral dissertation, "The Transformation of the Jewish Community of Izmir, 1847-1918" draws on a large body of previously unexplored Ladino archival material and was a recipient of the Maurice and Marilyn Cohen Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship from the Foundation for Jewish Culture in 2011. Danon's teaching interests span the full range of Jewish history, with a particular focus on the Sephardi and Mizrahi communities of the Mediterranean world. Her publications include "Abraham Danon, la vie d'un maskil ottoman, 1857-1925," in Itinéraires Sépharades, ed. Esther Benbassa, (Paris: Presses de l'Université Paris-Sorbonne, 2010), a translation of the 1847 Ladino "Shaavat Aniim" in The Sephardic Studies Reader (forthcoming, Stanford University Press), and several entries in the Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic World (forthcoming, Brill).
