Research Interests

My work focuses on Jewish identity in the latter-half of the 20th century, particularly as it relates to politics, culture, and diaspora.  My first book Moshe & Meir: Religious Nationalism and the Black Freedom Movement examines the intertwined political lives of cousins Moshe Cahana and Meir Kahane, examining how their competing identities as colonial subjects informed their activism both within and against Black civil rights struggles of the 1960s and 1970s.  I have also published work on portrayals of Jews and the Holocaust on American television and am working on an article examining Jewish identity in the Batman comics universe.

Teaching Interests

I regularly offer the second-half introductory US history surveys, focusing on the diversity and vibrancy of American history within them.  I also plan to offer upper-division courses in American Jewish history, the Jewish diaspora, and Jewish politics & colonialism that will be cross-listed between history and religious studies.
