About the Guest
Nora Katz is a public historian and theatre maker currently serving as the Director of Heritage and Interpretation at the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life (ISJL) in Jackson, Mississippi. In her role, she interprets and shares the rich legacy of Jews in the American South through public programs, trips and tours, historic preservation, and more. Originally from rural Pennsylvania, Nora holds a Master’s degree in Public History and Cultural Heritage from Trinity College Dublin and is passionate about the ways in which public history can advance social justice. Nora’s professional background is full of experiences telling engaging stories—from the visual history of Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin, Ireland, to the development of the art glass industry in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Nora is also the author of the humor book Literary Starbucks. When she’s not thinking about collective memory and historic preservation, Nora is running, hiking, baking sourdough, and playing tabletop role-playing games.
