She is currently completing her first book manuscript, Civilizers in Their Own Backyard: Interwar Poland and Its Eastern Borderlands; an article based on part of the book, entitled “Borderland Modernities: Poles, Jews, and Urban Spaces in Interwar Volhynia,” will appear this year in the Journal of Modern History.
