Research Interests

My dissertation traces the dynamics of Jewish memory and identity. It looks at Jews from the Habsburg province Galicia, their lives and communities in eastern Europe and the diaspora (1880s-1960s). My research interests include modern Jewish history, East-Central European history, eastern European and American Jewish history, memory and cultural studies.
