About Magda Teter

As a scholar of early modern religious and cultural history, I teach a broad variety of courses in Jewish history, early modern European history, and religious and cultural history of the pre-modern era. In my research I specialize in early modern religious and cultural history in Poland, focusing on the multifaceted topic of Jewish-Christian relations.
My work has been supported by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation (2012), the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation (2007 and 2012), the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, the Koret Foundation, YIVO Institute, and the Yad Ha-Nadiv Foundation (Israel), among others. In 2002, I was a Harry Starr Fellow at Harvard University. In the academic year 2007-2008, I was an Emeline Bigelow Conland Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies at Harvard University.
