Rhona Seidelman is the Schusterman Chair of Israel Studies and an assistant professor of history at the University of Oklahoma. Her research is on the history of immigration, the history of public health, and the history of Israel. Her book Under Quarantine: Immigrants and Disease at Israel’s Gate (Rutgers, 2020) tells the story of Shaar Ha’aliya, Israel’s “Ellis Island.” Professor Seidelman’s new project, “Claiming My Egypt,” explores questions of identity among the children of Egypt’s Jewish diaspora.
