Leora Auslander is Professor of European Social History and Founding Director of the Center for Gender Studies. Her research and teaching interests are in the fields of material culture, the history and theory of the everyday, gender history and theory, histories and theories of citizenship and national belonging, and most recently, of minority diasporic cultures, particularly that of the Jews. Her ongoing book project, Strangers at Home, is a comparative analysis of Paris and Berlin in the twentieth century, and her most recent area of research is at the intersection of Jewish history and material culture, including publications on Jewish taste and the aesthetics of everyday life in Paris and Berlin, Jews in Postwar Paris, and the question when a cultural practice is Jewish. Her teaching includes a civilization course on “European Judaism as Minority Diasporic Culture.”
