I am currently a teaching fellow and doctoral candidate in Jewish history at Stanford University with a PhD minor in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. My research and teaching interests focus on Jewish immigration to the US, intimacy and politics in Progressive Era America, and modern Jewish history through a gendered lens. My dissertation, "Radical Intimacies and Intimate Radicals: Russian Jewish Women and Anglo-American Men in Progressive America," tells a story of romantic relations between a handful of East European Jewish women and patrician-born, Anglo-American intellectuals in the early 1900s. I will defend the dissertation in April 2020.
