Professor in the Department of History, Moishe Postone’s research and teaching focus on 19th and 20th century European intellectual history, with emphasis on critical social theories and self-reflexive theories of historical context—theories that seek to grasp social, economic, and cultural processes in ways that illuminate the relation of such processes to the theories themselves. His work also focuses on the problematic of modern anti-Semitism and questions of history, memory, and identity in postwar Germany.
