Kenneth B. Moss is the Felix Posen Professor of Modern Jewish History at the Johns Hopkins University. His first book Jewish Renaissance in the Russian Revolution ( 2009) examines the idea of a modern Jewish culture and its relationship to Jewish nationalism and socialism through the lens of Hebrew and Yiddish cultural life during the Russian Revolution. Jewish Renaissance was chosen as a co-winner of the 2010 Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature. Moss is now working on East European Jewish political culture and political thought in the age of the nation-state, in a book provisionally entitled The Unchosen People. His work has appeared in Journal of Modern History, Jewish History, Jewish Social Studies and Journal of Israeli History, among other venues.
Kenneth B. Moss will present a lecture entitled: Negotiating the Nation in Interwar Warsaw
