Dr. Raz Segal earned his PhD in history at the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Clark University in 2013. He is assistant professor of Holocaust and Genocide Studies and Sara and Sam Schoffer Professor of Holocaust Studies at Stockton University, where he also serves as director of the Master of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide Studies. 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 de-formation of nation states and their devastating impact on the societies they sought (and seek) to break and remake. He has taught at the University of Haifa, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and Tel Aviv University, and he has held a Harry Frank Guggenheim Fellowship, a Fulbright Fellowship and a Lady Davis Fellowship at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His last book is Genocide in the Carpathians: War, Social Breakdown, and Mass Violence, 1914-1945 (Stanford University Press, 2016).
