David Rubinstein

Graduate Student


I am a historian of modern Central Europe, with an emphasis on the German-speaking lands. Focusing on political and intellectual history, I am interested in issues surrounding national identity and transnationalism, as well as borderland culture, urban history, and memorialization. I seek to examine the interplay of political thought and social behavior, integrating intelligentsia-driven narratives with studies of human emotions and intergroup dynamics.
