Andrea Schatz is a Reader in Jewish Studies at King’s College London.
Her book on the Hebrew language in the eighteenth century and its renewal as a modern language of the Jewish nation in the diaspora was published in 2009 (in German).
In her current research project she explores how European Jews used the Christian concept of the “Orient” when discussing religion, nation, language, and the complexities of belonging in the fraught political contexts of early secularism and colonialism.
She is a co-investigator of the AHRC-funded research project The Reception of Josephus in Jewish Culture from the 18th Century to the Present (Oxford) and, before coming to London, she held fellowships at the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University and the Universiteit van Amsterdam.
She received her PhD
in Jewish Studies from Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf in 2003.
