Paul S and Sylvia Steinberg Professor of American Jewish History
New York University
I am trained and practice as both an American historian with interests in immigration and ethnic history and women’s history as well as American Jewish history. I try to keep my hand in the broader field of American immigration history and as such write in it as well. In the latter context I teach and write beyond the borders of the United States, linking my American Jewish history interests to global Jewish migrations in the modern period.
