Udi Greenberg offers courses on modern German history, European intellectual history and modern European history. He received his PhD from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2010, and has also studied at the University of Heidelberg, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of California at Berkeley.
Professor Greenberg’s main research interests are the intersections between intellectuals and politics, the history of European political theory, and twentieth century transatlantic cultural interactions, particularly during the Cold War. His current research, entitled Cold War Weimar: German Émigrés and the Intellectual Origins of the Cold War, traces the intellectual origins of the Cold War to Central European theories developed during the interwar years. Professor Greenberg examines a selection of influential yet overlooked political thinkers who emigrated to the United States from Germany in the 1920s and 1930s and became prominent members of U.S. intellectual and political circles in the aftermath of World War II. Through an examination of their intellectual and political activities, he argues that prominent Cold War theories and terminologies should be understood not only as a reaction to the global struggle with Communism, but also as a continuation of debates over the nature of democracy, the relationship between religion and politics, and the role of intellectuals, political groups, and institutions in public life, debates that were central to the politics of 1920s Germany. Based on documents from Germany, Israel, Great Britain and the United States, this research has been published in several journals, including the Journal of Contemporary History and the Journal of European Studies.
