Dr. Sarah Wobick-Segev

Research Fellow

Sarah Wobick-Segev is a Minerva fellow affiliated with the Koebner Center at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Between 2014 and 2016, she served as the director of Jewish studies and visiting assistant professor at Western University (Canada). Her research focuses on the cultural and transnational history of modern European Jewry. Her first monograph, Homes away from Home: Jewish Belonging in twentieth-century Paris, Berlin and St. Petersburg is scheduled to appear in July 2018 with Stanford University Press. As a Minerva fellow at the Koebner Center, she is now beginning a second book project, an historical investigation of several prominent Central European Jewish women who, through their work and writings, served as public producers of Judaism and Jewish religious culture.

She has also published on expressions of religiosity among German Jews, and is presently working on articles about post-war French-Jewish children and another on the humanism of Stefan Zweig. She is the co-editor, with Dr. Gideon Reuveni, of the volume Speculation and Exchange: New Approaches to the Economy in Jewish History.
