Kate Rosenblatt is a historian of American religion with a focus on the history and experience of American Jews.  She earned a BA in American history from Columbia University (2006), a BA in Bible and Ancient Semitic Languages from the Jewish Theological Seminary (2006), and both an MA in Jewish Studies (2009) and a PhD in American history (2016) from the University of Michigan.

Kate’s first book, Cooperative Battlegrounds: Farmers, Workers, and the Search for Economic Alternatives (under contract, History of American Capitalism series, Columbia University) details the efforts of a coalition of Americans – workers, farmers, religious clergy and their laities, labor activists, reforms, state and federal bureaucrats, and others – to put forward an alternative expression of American capitalism by way of producer and consumer cooperatives across the twentieth century.   

She is also at work on a second book project, a reappraisal of the post-World War II American Jewish left.

Alongside her research, Kate loves teaching at Emory.  Past courses offered include:
