I am a historian of modern America with a particular interest in the intersection of popular culture, mass media industries, and labor relations.I received my Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2013, where I subsequently worked as a lecturer for four years. In 2017, I joined the history department at the Hebrew University as an Assistant Professor. My first book, Working in Hollywood: How the Studio System Turned Creativity Into Modern Labor, will be published in 2018 (UNC Press). I teach courses on African American History, American Consumer Culture, and Labor History.
