Dr. Raz Segal earned his Ph.D. at the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies (History Department), Clark University (2013). He is assistant professor of Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Stockton University. Dr. Segal is engaged in his work with the challenges of exploring the Holocaust as an integral part of modern processes of imperial collapse, the formation and occasional deformation of nation-states, and their devastating impact on the societies they sought (and seek) to break and remake. Integrative and comparative, his research stands at the intersection of modern European history, Holocaust scholarship, Genocide Studies, and Jewish history, and links the Holocaust to genocide and mass violence before, during, and after World War II. Dr. Segal’s book, Genocide in the Carpathians: War, Social Breakdown, and Mass Violence, 1914-1945 (Stanford: Stanford University Press, 2016) explores these issues through a regional case study.
