About David Itzkowitz, Retired

David Itzkowitz is knowledgeable about modern British, European and Jewish history as well as Victorian society. His interests include early 19th century Europe and the creation of modern Jewish identity. He regularly teaches an interdisciplinary course on the Victorian period with a member of the English department. He has written essays on a variety of subjects including the concept of religious freedom as it applied to Jews of Western Europe in the 19th century. His early publications are on Victorian social history, particularly the history of leisure. In recent years, sparked largely by his experience teaching Jewish history at Macalester, he has moved his research into the history of Victorian Anglo-Jewry.
Itzkowitz has been teaching at Macalester since 1974.
