Deborah Dash Moore is Frederick G. L. Huetwell Professor of History at the University of Michigan and Director of the Jean and Samuel Frankel Center for Judaic Studies. A historian of American Jews, she focuses on the twentieth-century experience. She is the author of a trilogy: At Home in America: Second Generation New York Jews (1981), GI Jews: How World War II Changed a Generation (2004), and To the Golden Cities: Pursuing the American Jewish Dream in Miami and L.A. (1994).
Research Plan: In the 1930s, Jewish photographers in Europe and the United States discovered liberating possibilities in picturing the world through a camera’s lens. Their photographs have influenced our understanding of important aspects of modernity. Professor Moore's project unpacks their ways of seeing in relation to their experiences as Jews with cameras.
