Anthony Wexler (PhD, Johns Hopkins University) studies postwar American literature, specializing in Jewish literature and the Holocaust in American life. He has held research and teaching fellowships at Colby College, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Johns Hopkins University, and Northwestern University. He has also studied traditional Jewish texts at yeshivas in Israel and New York. His current book project is titled At a Distance of Years: The Novel of Aging in the Shadow of Auschwitz. In it, he examines how a group of late-life novels challenge the ways the Holocaust has been received and represented in American life.
