New Research Fellow – Dr. Marc Volovici
Marc Volovici is Alfred Landecker Lecturer at the Department of Jewish History, University of Haifa. He specializes in the history of Jewish politics and culture in Central and Eastern Europe in the twentieth century, the history of antisemitism, and the Holocaust. He is the author of German as a Jewish Problem: The Language Politics of Jewish Nationalism (Stanford University Press, 2020), which traces the Jewish history of the German language from the late nineteenth century to the aftermath of the Holocaust, using it as a prism for understanding the historical, religious, and ideological tensions embedded in Jewish nationalism. Together with David Feldman, Marc is the co-editor of Antisemitism, Islamophobia and the Politics of Definition (Palgrave Macmillan, forthcoming, 2023). His current project studies Jewish political and intellectual responses to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Marc served as an academic advisor and co-edited the catalogue for the exhibition Jews, Money, Myth, which was staged at the Jewish Museum London in 2019. He received BA and MA degrees from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a PhD from Princeton University’s Department of History. Before joining the University of Haifa, he served as a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the Birkbeck Institute for the Study of Antisemitism and the Department of History at Birkbeck, University of London.
