Sarah Cramsey, Ph.D
Dr. Sarah Cramsey is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Jewish Studies at Tulane University. Before moving to New Orleans she taught in the History Department at the University of California, Berkeley. She completed her dissertation, entitled Uncertain Citizenship: Jewish Belonging and the 'Ethnic Revolution' in Poland and Czechoslovakia, 1938-1948 in May 2014 and is currently working on turning her dissertation into a book of the same name. Her research interests include the Jewish experience in Poland and Czechoslovakia, the emergence of the state of Israel, the history of forced migrations and, not surprisingly, the contours of coexistence in modern Europe. She has taught and traveled with undergraduate students in Minsk, Prague, Krakow, Oswiecim and Israel beside her experience as an educator at Berkeley. Currently, she is interested in the Ukrainian minority in interwar Poland, the diplomatic universe in Tehran during World War II and trying every iced coffee available in New Orleans. She wishes that Prague had the climate of Berkeley.
