Family Research with Daniel Soyer

As the historian Enzo Traverso notes, it is no longer unusual for historians to write about their own families. “Now,” Traverso writes, historians’ “books no longer try only to answer the question what happened, how, and why, but also-- or rather—another question of an existential nature: who am I, from where do I come, what familial or generational ties connect me to the past?” In this presentation, Daniel Soyer will discuss his current research, which views the tremendous transformations in Jewish life in the 19th and 20th centuries through the lens of his own family’s history. In particular, he will discuss the ways in which the Hebrew and Yiddish writer Avrom Soyer (Sho’er) constructed a memory of the East European Jewish past that was both nostalgic and anti-nostalgic. He will also talk about the perils of reliance on historical sources that might be fiction, and fictional sources that might be historical.

Daniel Soyer is professor of history at Fordham University. His most recent books are Left in the Center: The Liberal Party of New York and the Rise and Fall of American Social Democracy (Cornell, 2021), and The Jewish Metropolis: New York from the 17th to the 21st Century (Academic Studies Press, 2021).
