- About Me
Currently writing a book on Jewish sororities and civil rights in Cold War America. I also write on American antisemitism and debates about identity and allyship within the American Jewish community, past and present.
I also write pieces on contingent faculty and increasing the visibility of scholars who are not in tenure track positions, but stay active with teaching, scholarship and/or research.
