Leora Auslander

Arthur and Joann Rasmussen Professor in Western Civilization in the College; Professor of European Social History University of Chicago


The primary national focus of Leora Auslander's research is modern France, but she has found herself intrigued by research problems best treated transnationally. Her most recent book, Cultural Revolutions, moves across the Atlantic world from Britain, to colonial and early national America, and finally eastwards again to France. An ongoing pair of projects, Strangers at Home and Conundrums of Commemoration, stay on the European continent but involve a comparative analysis of Paris and Berlin in the twentieth century. Auslander maintains an active interest in and regularly teaches the history of European colonialism and the postcolonial world it left behind.
