Position title: TA: History 120 with Professor Bloch
Office: 4271 Mosse Humanities Building
Mailbox: 5064 Mosse Humanities Building
Office Hours: TBA
I am interested in the intersection of Jewish, (post-)colonial, and modern European history. My research investigates the paradoxes of liberalism as a force of both emancipation and domination. I am currently working on a dissertation project which intertwines two stories that are usually considered in separate terms: Jewish responses to antisemitism and the antiracist struggle of other racialized populations, namely Black Europeans, guest workers, immigrants from former colonies, and Sinti and Roma.
