Research projects:

A European-French Patriot? Adolphe Crémieux as a champion of minority rights across imperial borders

The project aims at a biography of the French lawyer, statesman and Jewish activist Adolphe Crémieux (1796-1880). It asks how Crémieux acted in transnational, European and colonial contexts, how the different fields of action influenced each other, and how Crémieux was later integrated into different narratives of Jewish history.
