I am a historian of modern France, modern Europe, and modern Jewry.
I am the Simon and Riva Spatz Visiting Chair of Jewish Studies at Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS.
In 2016-17 was the Lydia and David Zimmern Fellow at the Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and in 2015-2016, an international fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study at New Europe College in Bucharest, Romania.
I am a frequent contributor and instructor of the Fellows program at the Museum of Jewish Montreal.
In 2014-2015 I was Visiting Assistant Professor of European History at the University of Maine.
Originally from Montréal, QC, I defended my PhD in November, 2013 in the Department of History and Borns Jewish Studies Program at Indiana University, Bloomington. In Spring 2014 I was a Postdoctoral Visiting Research Scholar and instructor in the Borns Jewish Studies Program at IUB. I am currently a Research Associate at the Institute for Canadian Jewish Studies at Concordia University, Montréal.
My research and publication record centres on European and Jewish history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, particularly the First and Second World Wars, as well as the interwar period. I am currently revising my first book manuscript for publication, which focuses on Jewish health, wellness, and regeneration in France after the First World War. Research for my doctoral dissertation was funded by a doctoral fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. My second project investigates the social life of antisemitism in towns and cities in Alsace-Lorraine during the late interwar refugee crisis.
