Daniella Farah (PhD Stanford University, 2021) is a postdoctoral fellow in Jewish Studies at Rice University. As a historian of the Jews of the modern Middle East and North Africa, her research focuses on Jewish-Muslim relations, national belonging, and Jewish identity formation in nineteenth and twentieth-centuries Iran and Turkey. Her current book project, Integrating Iranian Jews: Education, the Press, and National Belonging in Modern Iran, explores how the intersection of education, the press, and nationalism enabled Jews in twentieth-century Iran to make claims of belonging to the nation.
